SWIMMING AT ST. AUDRIES POOL
Would you like to attend a regular swimming session at St Audries Pool but need the hoist in order to get in the pool?
I am very keen on helping to set up at least one swimming session per week for local people who require the use of the hoist at St Audries pool. I already have two local people who are interested.
The pool would need to be hired on a weekly basis (which would mean you would not have to take out membership of the pool). I need at least 7 people to make the session financially viable as the pool hire is £35 per hour. The session would also need two volunteers to come along each week to help, as the hoist needs two people to operate it. The volunteers could be on a rota so that the commitment would not be too demanding.
The sessions proposed would be for one hour, every week, on a Monday. We can choose when we run the session as long as its between 12.30 and 3.00.
Please contact me on the below number if you are interested.
If you are finding life a bit hard going at the moment, I may be able to help.
Please phone me: Izzy Silvester, your village agent on 07931 018045, leave me your name and number and I will ring you back.
Or email me on firstname.lastname@example.org
I only work part-time so it may take a day or two for me to return your call.

Help Build a Hinkley Legacy in Somerset
Somerset Community Foundation (SCF) is looking for volunteers to join the EDF Energy Community Fund Awards Panel to help communities affected by the Hinkley Point C development and build a lasting legacy in Somerset.
SCF will be managing the EDF Energy Community Fund, which is part of the 'Section 106' mitigation measures agreed through the planning process. The fund is designed to lessen the impact of Hinkley Point C on the local communities by supporting projects that improve the social, economic and environmental well-being and enhance overall quality of life.
The Awards Panel will include representatives from EDF and SCF trustees, as well as local councils, but the Foundation is also looking for up to three independent volunteers to help make decisions on applications to the multi-million pound fund and provide advice to the SCF Board on the overall fund strategy.
Justin Sargent, CEO of Somerset Community Foundation, said: “We would like to hear from anyone who knows Somerset well - particularly the area around Hinkley Point C - and who can think and act independently. If you are committed to improving the well-being and quality of life in local communities, we'd be really interested to hear from you.”
To find out more about the role, visit www.somersetcf.org.uk or apply by sending your CV and a covering letter to email@example.com or by post to: Somerset Community Foundation, Yeoman House, Bath and West Showground, Shepton Mallet, BA4 6QN.
The deadline to apply is Friday 7 July, 2017 at 5pm, and shortlisted applicants will be interviewed during the week beginning 17 July, 2017.
The first call for grant applications to the EDF Energy Community Fund is expected to be in the autumn of this year. Meanwhile the Community Impact Mitigation Fund, managed by West Somerset District Council, is already in operation and can be accessed through their website.
