Joymount has not been able to confirm that U3A groups can use their facilities (this does NOT affect those groups already using the church hall); so we are still in limbo about where to hold various group meetings.  Please refer to this page often because as soon as we know what is happening, we will post it on here as well as informing all group leaders.

We have it on good authority that the library can still be used at nil charge until the next meeting of the Board.

Red Cross

Each year Red Cross provides short-term loans of wheelchairs to thousands of people and we can only do this by utilising the skills and experience of a dedicated group of volunteers. We are currently looking to recruit additional volunteers in your area who may be willing to give a few hours a week or more to work in our spokes, and also deliver and collect wheelchairs, all mileage is reimbursed at 45p per mile and full training is provided, no experience necessary.
