Volunteer Role All Saints Church occupies a unique position at the heart of Kingston and has witnessed much, from the coronation of Athelstan, the first King of England in 925, through the Reformation and slavery, right up to the role of the church in Kingston today. The Heritage and Learning department at All Saints is committed to engaging people of all ages with the rich history of the church and Kingston. Family activities take place throughout the Kingston Borough school holidays and aim to be a fun and creative way for families and visitors to engage with the history and heritage of All Saints. These activities can include trails around the church, art and craft activities, storytelling and demonstrations from visiting craftspeople and performers. The family activities aim to highlight specific aspects of the church, giving families the opportunity to explore and enjoy the fabric of the building in a new way, while spending time together. Family activities heritage volunteers undertake a variety of tasks, to support the work of the Heritage and Learning department. These include welcoming families to the church, helping with trails inside the church and art and craft activities. What is involved? • Completing an induction and informal training to develop your skills • Providing a friendly welcome for all visitors to All Saints • Sharing and engaging with visitors of all ages (from early years to the elderly) • Delivering craft workshops to families • Learning about the history of All Saints • Contributing to planning of activities and providing feedback from events • Working in compliance with All Saints Church Safeguarding Policy and Guidelines.

Kingston hospital has a fine record of achievement but can never be complacent in thinking that there is no room for improvement.

It is importnat that Kingston Hospital NHS Trust reflects the views and priorities of local people and delivers services that keep abreast of health technology. Membership of the Trust is free and entitles members to a regular newsletter; invitations to specific health talks; and participation in occasional surveys and focus groups.

Members are also entitled to vote in elections for local Governors and can stand to become a volunteer Governor and complete a three year term. The role of Governor is to represent the local area.

If standing in the election for a Governor is of interest, there will be an information evening at 6.00p.m. on Wednesday 6th September at the Education Centre, Surgical Centre Building of Kingston Hospital. All are welcome and the meeting will provide more insight into the Governor's role and whether you feel it appropriate that you should stand to become a Governor.

First stage membership enquiries should be directed to FTMembership@kingstonhospital@nhs.uk or telephone 02089342145. You can also book a place at the early September meeting.
