Erewash Community Connectors

It has been a great week for the programme this week! We have set up our Facebook page – search ‘Erewash Community Connectors’ and our Twitter feed @EVAConnectors. Please follow us to find local information and see what our Connectors have been doing. We have registered 4 new Connectors this week, to add to our first 2, registered last week.
It is great to see the network of Community Connectors growing. I attended the Volunteer Organisers Forum on Monday to promote the project and meet other organisers who support volunteers in Erewash. It was the perfect opportunity for me to discover the variety of different services that are active and doing great work in the community. On Wednesday I met with Community Concern Erewash to find out what great work they do across Erewash. I also attended a Thriving Communities Celebratory event in Cotmanhay and heard of some fantastic projects that are now established in the community. Finally, to end the week, today I have been speaking to local businesses at Erewash Partnership Summer Networking Event.
