Volunteers urgently needed!

Are you looking for a new challenge?

Are you enthusiastic about your village community?

Do you have a head for business and a flair for fundraising?

Dunchurch Community Library is a flourishing hub for the village. Run entirely by volunteers since April 2012, under the controlling authority and support of the Parish Council, it has continued to offer the community all you would expect from a modern library. Volunteers run successful evening events, the library space can be hired for meetings or activities, and donated books are sold, all of which contribute to the running costs.

The Parish Council may not be able to continue to support the library when the current favourable lease with Warwickshire County Council ends, as any new lease could be at a commercial market rent. If the library is to remain open in the future it is essential that more money is raised and so the fundraising efforts need to be enhanced. One way forward is to form a Community Interest Company which would have more freedom than the Parish Council to raise money, through sponsorship, running a village lottery, putting on more ambitious events and so on.

If you could help in any way we would love to hear from you.
