MEET OUR STEERING GROUP
Our Steering Group helps keep Friends of Westdene Green and The Barn running smoothly. We're a friendly bunch who meet four times a year and often in between times to carry out our various activities. If you have ideas, skills, experience, and a little time to give, we would love to hear from you firstname.lastname@example.org
"I’ve always been an active supporter of The Barn, and as work and family commitments have changed I am pleased to have more time to become more involved. I work in healthcare and I’m interested in embracing the opportunities we have as a community to enable and support each others health and wellbeing across all ages"

"Having worked in the voluntary sector all my life, I was thrilled to be asked by the Barn team to lead on the membership and volunteering role we’ve just created. Recent world events have shown us that there is a huge amount of goodwill in our communities. Watch this space for some interesting volunteer opportunities we are creating for our residents here in Westdene."

“I’m so pleased that the Barn has succeeded in bringing people together! I get a huge amount of enjoyment helping to book activities and clubs into the space and hearing how they thrive. Organising Musical Midsummer and helping out with other community events is also a lot of fun.”

"I have very much enjoyed coordinating the Get Together to Eat Together lunch club. So I have always felt myself to be part of the team, as being part of my community is an essential part of life for me. As a therapist and a cooking teacher, I am always looking for opportunities to bring people together and enhance well being through sharing good food with one another, building a sense of delicious community!"

"I work in the world of social & community business and tried to keep my nose out locally until our community asset, The Barn was threatened at the end of 2015. I'm so proud of our neighbours for stepping up and showing the world how important our sense of connection and belonging is. With The Barn sitting pretty on Westdene Green at the heart of our community, 'all we need to do now' is keep it there!"
