Can you help others become more green?

Recycling week logoWould you like to help people in your community to reduce what they throw away, reuse where possible and recycle what can't be used again? The Surrey Green Network is a group of local residents who encourage others to throw less away - such as wasting less food and composting at home.

The network is made up of local volunteers and would like to welcome more people to the team. Are you interested in green issues? Would you like to be part of an active group in the community, meet new people, and develop some new skills at the same time?

Volunteers can choose how much time they spend with the team on days that suit them, and earn rewards based on the time they've spent volunteering. No experience is necessary to volunteer, full training is provided and you will be supported by a dedicated co-ordinator.

The next training session for new volunteers is taking place at the Surrey History Centre in Woking on Saturday 31 May 2014. Lunch and refreshments are provided, and travel costs are reimbursed.

Would you like the volunteers to help you?

Look out for the Surrey Green Network's volunteers at local events, fairs and community days while you're out and about this summer.

If your organisation (such as your school, community group or business) want to know more about reducing food waste and home composting, then the Surrey Green Network's volunteers can help.

Maybe you have an event coming up where the network's volunteers could speak, or run a stand to promote reducing food waste and home composting?
