Community Vouchers in Melksham
Melksham Town Council is stepping up to continue running a volunteer reward scheme in Melksham following the closure of Time Credits in Wiltshire.
Melksham Town Council recognise that the Time Credit scheme was an excellent way to reward volunteers and have decided to continue running a similar scheme. The details of the scheme are as follows:
It is called the Melksham Community Voucher Scheme
- Instead of the familiar green Time Credits, the scheme will use new pink vouchers
- A voucher will be distributed to volunteers for every hour spent litter picking (or carrying out another voluntary activity included in the scheme).
- People will be able to redeem their existing green Spice Time Credits that they currently hold for these new pink vouchers (at the Town Hall or Assembly Hall).
- The vouchers will be accepted at the cinema in Melksham Assembly Hall along the same lines (two per film). Further details are here.
The regular Tidy Town Days will be an opportunity for people to earn the new vouchers. Tidy Town Days take place normally on the first Sunday of every month for a couple of hours in the morning or afternoon. If you are interested in doing your bit, please just show up in suitable outdoor clothes. Tools and gloves will be provided. The venue changes each month so keep your eye on our website or Facebook page for details or contact Clare Harris on 01225 704187 or firstname.lastname@example.org
The next Tidy Town Day is on Sunday 13th May 2018 - 1-3pm meeting at the Town Hall.
As well as joining in litter picking activities, everyone in Melksham can take part in the national one pick litter scheme, where everyone is encouraged to pick up one piece of litter a day. More information can be found here, but it is as simple as picking up one piece of litter every day, which anyone can join in with at any time.
