VOLUNTEERS NEEDED TO LISTEN TO CHILDREN READ IN LOCAL PRIMARY SCHOOLS

Can you spare an hour or two a week to listen to children read in a local primary school? "Schoolreaders" is looking for more volunteers in Hertfordshire to carry out this important role.

Reading time for many children at home and at school is often insufficient and one in four children are now leaving primary school unable to read to the required standard. This can have a lifelong consequence. No qualifications are necessary, just a good command of spoken and written English.

Schoolreaders is flexible and will match your availability to an appropriate, local school. Our volunteers find the scheme incredibly rewarding, knowing that a few hours helping a child learn to read each week can have such a great impact on their life chances.

Please visit the schoolreaders website (www.schoolreaders.org.uk) by clicking here to join or call 01234 924111 for further information.


Membership Badges may be collected at the following Wednesday morning meetings:-
20 September & 1 November at Hatfield, and 27 September & 25 October in WGC.
They can also be collected on Monday 27 November at the New Members Coffee Morning in Verulam House, WGC.


The minutes of the 2017 AGM are on the "Committee" page of this website


A working group was set up by the Chairman of the Third Age Trust in 2016 to look into the future structure of the Third Age Trust, and this group has published its findings and recommendations. You can read these by clicking here (PDF).
