The Entry Sheets for the events shown  will be put on the notice board well in advance of the date and all seniors (whatever their handicap)  are encouraged to participate. The table will be kept up to date and will remain a rolling image of the next 3 to 4 months.

2023 Senior and Club Captains Charity

Home-Start Blackmore Vale provides support to parents with at least one child under 5 who are going through a difficult time. Being a parent, whatever your situation, can be very challenging, especially when children are young. Many parents feel exhausted and overwhelmed by the stresses of family life. For some parents it’s a particular struggle because they are also coping with issues such as post-natal depression, their or their child’s illness or disability, isolation or multiple births. That’s when parents need support. That’s when Home-Start Blackmore Vale can help. A carefully selected trained volunteer, who has parenting experience, can visit regularly and offer emotional and practical support. This friendly parent-to-parent support is a simple yet effective way of enabling families to get back on track.
