Letham Gymkhana takes a break!

We’re sorry to say that the Letham Gymkhana is taking a break this year (2013).
It was going to be a lot of extra work to find a new venue, after the closure of the Howe earlier this year.
So we took the decision to skip a year, but are planning to get things going again next year,  2014.  Watch this space!
If anyone would like to help us organise the show, or has any suggestions for a good local venue to replace the Howe do let us know!  While we have a couple of possible venues, we’d be keen to hear of any other ideas.
Thanks for your support in previous years, and hope to see you again next year.

WOULD YOU LIKE TO HELP YOUR LOCAL COMMUNITY?
If you can answer yes to these questions, we would like to hear from you.
Royal Voluntary Service is one of the largest volunteer organisations in the country. By giving your time to do something practical for an older person in your community you help them stay active and independent.
Volunteering with us won’t just transfer the lives of older people; it will change your life too. Volunteers only give up the time that they want to give whether it’s as little as 1 to 2 hours a week, fortnight or month. The commitment you make is entirely up to you, when and if you are available on the time/day we need to provide the service.

Services
•Community Transport
Royal Voluntary Service volunteers, provide transport across fife, using their own cars, to those individuals who find that other transport systems don’t meet their needs.
•Good Neighbours
As a good neighbour volunteer, you could be asked to help with a number of tasks such as befriending, help with shopping, collecting library books and confidence building
•Service Assistant
As a Service Assistant Volunteer you would be asked to help within the shop/cafe at Stratheden Psychiatric Care Hospital dealing with customers including patients, staff and visitors and empathic and patient nature is a major quality in this volunteering opportunity, all additional training given.
