FENLANDER: Deadline extended for free training course for volunteers who want to improve community life
THE door is still open for volunteers who want to improve life in their communities by helping people to resolve difficulties with their neighbours.
The deadline has been extended for applicants for a free training course that the Cambridge and District Community Mediation Service (CDCMS) is offering in Wisbech, with the aim of establishing the service in Fenland.
Fenland District Council is working on the project with the CDCMS and the Rosmini Centre.
Councillor David Oliver, FDC’s portfolio holder responsible for social cohesion, said: “Many misunderstandings crop up between neighbours that can often fester and develop into more serious arguments.
“This service could play an important part in bringing communities together and we need people to come forward to help us set it up.”
