Two participants share their experiences of participating in their local virtual community group.
Virtual Village Hall Participant
She says: “I have benefitted [from the Virtual Village Hall] a great deal. I love the gardening sessions and have made many of the things that Gemma Forde has demonstrated like body scrubs and reusable face cleansing cloths, and some of the cookery demonstrations.
The wide range of events on offer is fantastic. As a Guide leader, I have shared some of the ideas with our girls in weekly newsletters. I would be very grateful if you could pass on our gratitude to all those responsible for the Virtual Village Hall which have been extremely well received during the difficult times over the last few months when so many people have had to spend so much time at home.”
Keeping active is so important for our health and wellbeing, particularly in these challenging times, and this has all sorts of fun activities to try at home.

Royal Voluntary Service Ambassador
A quote from Royal Voluntary Service ambassador Elaine Paige OBE, who answered questions about her life in music and theatre at the Virtual Village Hall. She also hosted a singalong to her hit song, I Know Him So Well, as part of a celebration to thank volunteers for their service during Volunteers’ Week.
“I’m very proud to be a Royal Voluntary Service ambassador and was delighted to be invited to be a special guest at the Virtual Village Hall. Keeping active is so important for our health and wellbeing, particularly in these challenging times, and this has all sorts of fun activities to try at home.”
