As part of Dudley CVS’s exciting new campaign to launch the 2010 Dudley Volunteer Awards, some of the people who scooped awards at last year’s ceremony agreed to star in their 2010 campaign based on another popular film.
‘Meet the real Incredibles’ stars local people who give up their time to make Dudley borough a better place and hope that their posters will get you thinking about the incredible people you know who could be nominated. You can put groups forward too as long as they do not include any paid staff members. Look out for our posters in local shops, libraries and the Dudley CVS office in Albion Street, plus you can download your nomination form from www.dudleycvs.org.uk, or call 01384 267425. The closing date is September 19th 2010.
Neighbours News is a non-profit voluntary organisation, formally constitued as a group since September 1999 on the Castle & Priory Ward in Dudley. We produce community newsletters for residents. As of 2004, we have expanded to other areas (most of which are in high deprivation).
We want to get a community newsletter for Brierley Hill circulating, because there is interest, however we need to find any potential funders and anyone who might be interested in sponsoring an edition. High Arcal School in Sedgley has sponsored an edition of the Oval & Tudor News in Upper Gornal, for example.
We remove the official language and put it in plain English for people to understand, keeping them informed about local issues, training and job opportunities, developments, town centre events, etc.
Our local distribution is carried out by community groups and the print group we use trains people with learning difficulties.
We are based on the Pensnett Trading Estate, having relocated offices, due to the demolition work being done on North Priory, where our former premises were in Pine Road.
