"HOUR COMMUNITY" is the Community Service project launched by Framlingham Rotary Club in 2010.
The project links needy persons with tradespeople and other volunteers who are willing to donate an hour (or so) of their skilled time - maybe it's plumbing, paving slabs or electrics, or gardening, dog walking etc
In addition we are now running a Mini-bus service to Ipswich Hospital from Framlingham, this can be arranged by contacting Stuart at Hour Community 01728 440511, or 07808 533453.
We have a ten seater vehicle with hydraulic tail gate or a five seater with a ramp, both capable of carrying wheelchair bound passengers either to hospital or other pre-arranged visits. We also run a Peugeot Tepee with five seats and wheelchair capacity for hospital, dentist , doctors or even vets visits
We are also installing free-of-charge Smoke Detectors to homes who need them, or checking those already in situ that may be inoperative.
For details on any of these - contact Stuart at the Hour Community Office, next to the Town Council offices 01728 440 511 www.hourcommunity.co.uk
That's the sort of thing that we get up to here in Framlingham!! So, whether you're on holiday here in North Suffolk, or live nearby, you're sure to come across our activities from time to time.
We enjoy weekly meetings over a light dinner at the Crown Hotel, usually with a guest speaker, or some home-spun entertainment, and help organise a number of community-related projects during the year. Some of these events need financial support so you'll often see us looking to raise funds from public subscription.
