could we do with straight up volunteering page.

that could link into the volunteer centre's page and we could maybe get more vollies via outside means.

we are not registered with these people ? are we?

anyway, a straight forward volunteer button and page would be GREAT!

make it and i will sort the content.

About Forest Cafe' and Artspace
The Forest Cafe' is a volunteer run artspace which aims to provide a friendly environment where arts events (music, poetry, visual arts, film etc.) can be put on free of charge. We also promote environmental and political issues through documentaries and literature and we are developing an educational programme.

About Opportunity
The Forest Cafe' requires new volunteers to make and serve simple meals and snacks, and drinks such as coffee, tea and juices. Some cleaning is also required. The work is enjoyable and a great way to meet new people, especially as the cafe' has a freindly, relaxed atmosphere. For anyone interested in the arts, or environmental or political issues, it is a great place to make contacts with like minded people. there are discounts on food prices for volunteers, and free meals available during shifts. To see the results of the volunteers work come to some of our events!

nice one. I think that we can have them link to the volunteer page rather than to the messy and confusing main page - perhaps that is better?

I will try to promote other stuff besides the kitchen like web and art etc.

cool?

thanks for doing that gareth
