Welcome to the Pop In Place

Safeguarding of children and vulnerable adults’…

The pop in place regards the safeguarding of children and vulnerable adults as an essential part of our project.
We have a designated safeguarding Team under the leadership of Alison Bennett and Joanna Syrett.
We operate Child protection Policy and a vulnerable adults policy and all volunteers in direct contact have current DBS clearance.
The policies are monitored regularly and training is given to volunteers

For your Diary...

The garden is a picture with many beautiful flowers and there were lots of butterflies and bees.
Thank you to Mike Benjafield for driving the community bus.

Pop In Place Community Shed
There are “Men’s sheds popping up all over the UK, it is a place to get people together to help to combat isolation encourage wellbeing and to share skills working on a variety of woodwork projects.
We are currently working with Vitacress to open a shed in Bere Regis it will be open for both men and woman and have special workshop Saturday mornings for youngsters with an appropriate adult.
We will be at the Bere Festival on 30th June  to update on progress and to answer your questions.
In the meantime if you would like to make a donation towards the set up costs of this new initiative or are able to donate wood tools  skill sharing etc in the future  please get in touch with me.
