Bexhill residents who are interested in finding out about volunteering have the chance to talk to an expert at Bexhill Library.

Every month, a ‘Volunteering Champion’ will be available at the library, in Western Road, to answer questions about volunteering and advice on how people can find the right role for them.

This is a new service in the town from Volunteer Centre East Sussex, providing information to people interested in becoming a volunteer and details of organisations that involve volunteers.

Cllr Chris Dowling, East Sussex County Council lead member for community services, said: “Volunteering is a great way to give back to your community, make friends and learn new skills.

“These new drop-in sessions at Bexhill Library will make it easier for people to find out more about how volunteering can fit into their lives with an informal chat in a central community venue.”

The Volunteering Champion will be available from 1pm to 3pm on July 9, August 13, September 10, October 8 and November 12.
