Volunteering

Dear All,

Many of you will be aware of all the hard work which takes place at Greenmount Old School when running Jumble Sales and Collector’s Fairs. These activities contribute to the upkeep of the building, allowing a comfortable environment for all the groups who use this space, and there are many.

Our volunteers work with dedication every day of the week, sorting out all the items that you so kindly donate.

What is needed is help displaying all the items for the collector’s fair which takes several days to set up. If you think that you would like to get involved in some way, even if it is just for an hour or two, or if you are free to make tea and coffee when the event takes place, then please see the attached documents which will give you a break down of the help that is needed in the next two weeks.

Please help us to keep this fabulous building going by contributing your time and you never know, you might make new friends on the way.

Kind regards,

Julie Southworth

Greenmount Voice

Good afternoon to all

If you live in Greenmount you will be receiving a copy of Greenmount Voice through your letter box this week, a digital copy is attached to this post. You will be able to read about the local projects which have won significant funding in our area, all by groups run by people who are passionate about improving our community.

Also, there are updates on sales events at the Old School, our planned celebrations for the Platinum Jubilee, progress on the new Well-being trail and news about the reopening of D-CaFF.

Also attached is a copy of the poster advertising the Rotary event for Ukraine as it was missing from some emails sent out yesterday

Important Information – Bury Council Elections – May 5th 2022

Dear All

Make sure you are registered to vote!  The local elections are four weeks away and this is your chance to have your say about who represents you on Bury Council.

There are two important changes to note this year:

  • There have been some boundary changes so please check your poll card when it arrives, so you know where to vote.
  • As a result of the boundary changes across the borough, all 51 council seats are up for election, so you will have THREE votes rather than the usual one.

If you are not already on the electoral roll, the deadline to register to vote in these elections is midnight on Thursday 14th April.

To register, go to www.gov.uk/register-to-vote  You will be asked for your National Insurance number, but you can still register if you do not have one.

If you don’t usually vote by post, you can apply for one by downloading a form here: www.electoralcommission.org.uk/i-am-a/voter/apply-vote-post.

You will need to return this form before 5pm on Tuesday 19th April. Once you have provided the required information, you will be sent a ballot paper approximately two weeks before the day of the election. If you apply to vote by post, you will not be able to vote in person at a polling station.
