Event description

Description


The aim of this event is simply to bring people together to discuss their ideas and see if we can work together to bring new ideas to life and to offer a helping hand to fledgling initiatives.

Here’s just a few of the ideas and early stage projects/groups that we’re aware of which will be represented:

Contact the Elderly organise monthly Sunday afternoon tea parties for small groups of older people aged 75 and over, who live alone, offering a regular and vital friendship link every month. Click here for more info

Soham Repair Café Repair Cafés are community events that match people who need stuff fixed with people who can, and like, fixing things. Soham’s first Repair Café will be held at the Library on 20 May between 10 – 2pm. More info available on their new Facebook page. There are enough volunteer repairers for the first one, but do need volunteers to help organise, promote and bake cakes for the café. Click here for more info.

Never Alone in SohamAn idea to bring local partner organisations in Soham together to tackle loneliness and isolation in our town.

Men in ShedsThey're community spaces for men to connect, converse and create. The activities are often similar to those of garden sheds, but for groups of men to enjoy together. Click here for more info.

Timebank Exchange - Neighbourhood Cares are starting to offer Time Credits and other communities have set up their own Timebanks. We can explore the opportunities.

Soham Day Centre - Plans are in the making to start a new volunteer-run day centre in the town.

Intergenerational ProjectsThere’s various ideas here. An example is the Love on the Rocks mini-workshop that is happening at Neighbourhood Cares next Coffee, Cake & Soham Info session (the children’s places are sold out, but this may be back by popular demand!)

If you have an idea you would like to share on the night contact wendy.lansdown@cambridgeshire.gov.uk

We hope you can join us!
