Here’s a video made by local photographer John Sutton on the benefits of volunteering at Fleet Pond using the Last of the Summer Wine (LOSW) activity of Fleet Pond Society as an excellent example.
This video is part of a series of three that Hart District Council are using to promote and celebrate the achievements that older people make to the local community.
Please see the Hart web site for further details. Here is an extract:
This year we’re celebrating the achievements and contributions that older people make to our society with 3 short films to mark UK Older People’s Day 2016.
The project is a collaboration between Hart District Council and local film-maker John Sutton from Clearwater Photography, with support from Hart Volunteer Centre.
The films give a flavour of some of the ways older residents are giving their time and sharing their knowledge and skills with others. They also showcase 3 themes, Connect, Keep learning, and Be active, which are part of the Five Ways to Wellbeing, a set of simple evidence-based actions individuals can take to promote their wellbeing.
If you are interested in volunteering at Fleet Pond, please contact our Chairman, Colin Gray, who will describe the various options:
