VOLUNTARY and community groups recently got together at Sewerby Hall to learn more about each other’s services.

The meeting of Bridlington Community Forum, arranged by Bridlington Renaissance Partnership, helped them learn more about attracting volunteers, and how to find grants, advice and benefits.

Peter Crawford, manager of Bridlington Community Resource Centre, and chairman of the Community Forum, said: “This was an opportunity for people involved with voluntary and community groups to learn more about the great work that is going on in our area, improve communication between organisations and consider more collaborative work in the future.”

The session featured services available through East Riding Voluntary Action Services (ERVAS), which, from this week, is holding a drop-in session every Monday at the Cop Shop in Bridge Street.
