Residents of the Aylsham area will soon have a new facility to help make their New Year Resolutions a reality with the opening of the new Aylsham Volunteering Information Point.

The 'V.I.P' is a joint venture between Broadland District Council's Grow Your Community project and Voluntary Norfolk's North Norfolk Volunteer Centre.

It will provide a focal point for local residents who would like to volunteer their time, talents and enthusiasm, and for locally-active groups, societies and organisations who would like to involve them in their work.

People will be able to browse a wide range of volunteering opportunities and seek help in finding a suitable role. Voluntary and community organisations will be able to promote their opportunities and get help with recruiting and managing volunteers.

The Aylsham V.I.P will open on Friday January 10 and will be based at Aylsham Library. Its opening hours will be 9.30am – 12.30pm every Friday, with additional support via phone and email available throughout the rest of the week from the North Norfolk Volunteer Centre based in Cromer.
