We are looking for: A creative designer to create various works that can be displayed around Welling. We are hoping to work with TFL to cover the various bridges in Welling with local artists work as well as try to obtain funding from the Arts council to pay for various artists to contribute their work to be displayed in and around Welling. We also need signage to provide descriptions for various areas in/and around Welling this is to provide information about the specific area, such as Shoulder of Mutton Green.

Discover Welling is a community group which aims to help highlight all the good things about Welling as well as finding ways to help enhance the community spirit of Welling. We exist to build on what is good. We are currently in the process of registering as a charity.

Throughout the pandemic, we have been mainly just online with our social media pages, sharing all the positive stories of Welling and helping to promote the businesses and community groups. The Christmas market was cancelled in 2020 due to COVID, but we did still manage to get some Christmas lights.

We were also pleased that funding was able to provide us with a website for Welling that we have been gradually adding content to.

In 2021, as things started to open up a bit, we started to make plans, but unfortunately, a lack of volunteers has severely restricted what we have been able to do. We did however raise enough funds so that Welling Town Centre had a Christmas tree and lights (Welling Sparkle).

Things we would love to do this year are:

Christmas Welling Sparkle – bigger than ever Welling gateways art installation project – different art pieces in various borders to Welling Poppy remembrance display Easter Activities Regular litter picking events Celebrations / Events to mark different special days in the calendar eg Diwali Welling Dynasties – stories of the family businesses that have been in Welling for decades Queen’s Jubilee activities

With the number of volunteers which we currently, have, it will only be possible to do a few of these activities, that is where we need YOUR help.

We have many ways that you could support Discover Welling, either as a volunteer, or just doing little tasks to help make the best of Welling. Other ways you can help without being directly involved with Discover Welling include:

Taking pictures around Welling and posting to google maps, social media etc Local guide on google maps – reporting any wrong information you see in Welling Reviewing things – post google reviews, trust pilot, trip advisor etc to help promote our businesses Report things to fixmystreet

We would love for anyone to join us
