Training will allow volunteers to fully understand what they should and should not do in their volunteering work and worked examples and discussion will help to guide them should they ever need to put them to practice.  Training sessions have been arranged for Monday 1st May and Thursday 25th May 2017 in the Old Parish Centre at 6.45pm.  Please advise Morag Scott (dandmscott@hotmail.co.uk) as soon as possible to confirm which date you are able to attend or if you have any queries.  Please note that there are limited places so it’s advisable to book a space asap.
