The Whitchurch Children’s Festival on 31 July and 1 August is a small, safe and friendly festival in Whitchurch, Hampshire, designed especially for families with pre-school and primary-school age children. The festival is an annual children’s arts event with the very specific aim of supporting children’s mental health and wellbeing through deepening their creative responses and emotional connection to the local landscape: the River Test, Mill Trail and the North Wessex Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). The location for the festival is a wildflower watermeadow belonging to the historic Fulling Mill which lies alongside the crystal-clear waters of the River Test in the rural North Hampshire town of Whitchurch.
They are looking for volunteers to help with the festival so that festival goers can make the most out of their weekend.

Home-Start Hampshire is a voluntary organisation and exists to help develop services to meet the growing need across our local community. They provide a range of support to families with children aged 0-11 years old across the county. Support is confidential, non-judgemental and as individual as the families they help.
Home-Start Hampshire is looking for enthusiastic, passionate volunteers as they strive to meet the demands of local families in post-pandemic times. Helping to organise fundraising events and joining-in fundraising challenges to ensure those who need help, can get it! Supporting communication to enable those who can support their charity, can more easily get engaged. Or being part of a volunteer team that delivers (once trained) regular support direct to a local family because investing in childhood is the single most important thing we can do for our children and communities futures.
