We will spend the rest of April distributing and collecting surveys. Then we’ll collate them to see if demand is sufficient for a scheme and if there are enough potential volunteers. There will be a gathering, open to all residents of Kesgrave, on Wednesday 23rd May at 7 30 pm at Kesgrave Community Centre, to find out more and hopefully help launch Kesgrave into a fully fledged scheme.
Above is a picture of volunteers from an existing Good Neighbour Scheme in Suffolk that has been up and running for a while. There are over 20 of these schemes across the county – we’ve spoken to quite a few people from other schemes and they are delighted with the results and the effect the schemes have had on the community.
