GTDT's community learning project has been an essential tool for so many, with the weekly virtual sessions, phone calls and contact time where all learners can gather together to learn new things, have a chin wag and make new friends.
The Gardening for All Seasons group have been an active bunch and although the course has now finished the group are still keeping in contact using the whatsapp group that they put together. They send tips to each other of where to pick up bargains for their gardens and send lovely words of encouragement to each other.
What has really been an inspiration is that every member of the group have signed themselves up as a GTDT volunteer, as once lockdown is lifted they would like to join us to offer support to the community in any which way that they can. Some wish to volunteer on the many environmental projects we have in the pipeline, some wish to become teaching assistants when we go back to face-to-face based teaching and some wish to volunteer with the kids and youth projects.
If you wish to step forward and support GTDT in the work that we do in the community why not give us a call at GTDT on 0151 734 4925 and speak to either Erin or Nicola.
