Bringing community together is important to Didcot First.

That is why we organise events either alone or with partner organisations.

Didcot:Get on Board was our most recent event run in conjunction with Didcot Rotary Club.It was held at Cornerstone on Sat 2nd June and involved over 40 local groups who offer opportunities to join in, volunteer and become members. It was a successful event and one which we are likely to organise again.

Feedback said:
The footfall was excellent in the outside space.
The information provided and location was more than excellent to help make the most of the
event.

I took 13 names on the day. Giving them leaflets and telling them about our scheme. I have had 6 of these that have contacted me and have already been through the DBS process. So very pleased.

Our main aim was to raise awareness of allotment provision in Didcot rather than sign up new members to DAS. It was useful in revealing the lack of understanding of the availability of allotments in Didcot. This will help us focus our future outreach activities.

We signed up a couple of potential volunteers for the Didcot Railway Centre and made some useful contacts.
