CVs are really tricky when you’ve been through the same academic journey as all of your mates, who are all applying for the same job. There’s only so far that clever wording and a decent layout will take you.
Fortunately, Tammy was there last year. She took you out on volunteering events as a steward, a server, a glass collector and a poppy seller, so now you have real-world work experience in a range of disciplines, and your CV looks decent af.
The last River Carnival in 2018 was one of The EPICs’ favourite ever shin-digs in the Shire, and they were made up to be involved in the filming of the Procession of Heads at the Castle Green this week for this year’s online festi. Learning about local legends like Ellie Goulding was icing on the cake after they paraded around like a 70s TV version of In The Night Garden for an afternoon.
Have a great festival from your armchairs, people. Make sure you support and we’ll catch you at the next one!
With the Close House Open day approaching it’s all hands on deck. We’ve been sending out invites, fixing that dodgy table that needed doing and making sure all are fed and happy helpers. We’ve had a good day playing Postman Pat, Bob the Builder and the Great British bake off.

This week at Close House we have had fun filming our new and exciting video: ‘All about Close House’ (coming soon). We had Pizza, doughnuts and young people galore; as we tried to capture the true heart of the drop in, with the help of the staff and the young people. Some young people were camera shy at first but soon let their true Hollywood nature come out owning the camera, with flair and enthusiasm. Thank you to Toni and Rich who came to film and were completely awesome. also a huge thank you to all the young people who wanted to come and share, how amazing Close House is to them.
On Friday 27th, an EPIC team of 6 young people went to help out at Kindle’s community lunch. A special 99th Birthday was celebrated during a lovely meal with live music and a young magician. Afterwards , a hyper motivated and efficient EPIC team of speed washer-upers smashed out the washing up in record time (luckily no plates were smashed).
On the 15th October Close House supporter Chris will be running the Birmingham Marathon for Close House. We thought he better do a test run first!
So on the 23rd September Close House and Chris set up a treadmill at The Old Market Hereford! Chris was on the treadmill for most of the miles, although he had help from Close House staff and young people!
We raised £170 on the day and would like to thank all that donated. Special thanks to The Coffee Corner for the free smoothies and The Old Market for being a great host!
