Volunteer at the Neighbourhood Gathering

The next big event we have coming up is the Neighbourhood Gathering on Tatum Street on Sunday 19th September. The Tatum Street Party is a regular local fixture and we’re excited to be able to hold a face-to-face event after the pandemic prevented our usual festivities last year.

This year will be a bit different. The Neighbourhood Gathering is an opportunity for all the residents, hub volunteers, riders and partners – old and new – who have worked to support one another to come together. For others it will be a chance to reconnect, or to get out and meet new neighbours for the first time.

We need your help to make this event happen. Come and join the team!

We have advance volunteer opportunities starting on Monday 13th September as well as multiple roles on the day, the details of which can be found below. You can sign up for any role via the button here. You may sign up for as many different roles as you like.
