Over 3 days at the end of June, Close House EPICs volunteered at Malvern’s Three Counties show. We had been invited to help with a very busy Church Tea tent to assist with both the Arts and crafts area and the Cafe. 3 days of blistering sun were endured under the canvas marque, but as these pictures go to show, all of the EPICs loved it!
9 of our brilliant EPIC volunteers provided help to Friday’s Kindle Centre community summer lunch . 40-50 elderly residents of South Wye came along to enjoy lunch together, lunch provided at a reasonable price by the team at the Kindle Centre. The young volunteers were the waiters and waitresses of the day, serving food and drinks and even washing up after (because washing up can be fun with musical motivation!). Awesome job by all involved!
Herefordbid asked us to join their community clean up. Our EPICs managed to clear up the private car park near Sainsbury’s. We picked 4 large black bags just from that area, with only three of us doing the job. I’d say we smashed it!
Our alternative nativity, the Story of Mary and Joe, is being shown at the Ledbury Poetry Festival on Sunday, 12th July at 3pm. Pick up your FREE ticket here as soon as you can as there is limited capacity: first come, first served!
