Get Involved: Volunteer!

Do you want to do something new, meet new people and be more involved in your local community? Our clubs and groups rely on volunteers to help local residents in many ways.
Below is a list of groups/clubs currently looking for volunteers. Please contact the group/club for more information.

Thakeham Community Events

Thakeham Community Events is a team of local residents who help organise social events in the Parish, primarily at the Village Hall and on the neighbouring playing field.  This includes a summer music festival and a Halloween fireworks display each year. They are always looking for help from anyone who can give it, either as a committee member (meeting every 2-3 weeks, usually by zoom) to help shape future events, or as a volunteer at events, helping to set up and pack away, or work on the bar for example. Send them an email if you are interested and be sure to keep an eye out for their upcoming events @ThakehamEvents on Facebook and Instagram.
