This report about a volunteer governor was published in the Autumn edition of HCC’s Horizons publication (click the image to view the whole magazine).
Across Hertfordshire, volunteers play a part in and make a real difference to their local communities. From leading health walks to allowing carers to take breaks, volunteers are increasingly helping our residents stay healthy and thrive.
John de Braux, from Rickmansworth, volunteered to become a school governor, this is what he has to say:
For me being a school governor is a very important responsibility, it has given me so many new opportunities and a sense that I am contributing in my own small way to our children’s futures for the good of the whole community. I would recommend it to anyone who is interested in the future of young people.
