The Octagon is always looking for volunteers with great ideas and a drive to contribute something important to their community. Here are a few things you could get involved in:

Help at one of our weekly events

If you'd like to contribute some time to helping at one of our weekly events, we would love to hear from you. Whether you can spare just an hour or two, a morning, a whole day or more, we always need more hands to make our community events run smoothly.

  • Food, hot drinks, friendship and discussion, at our Community Coffee Shop
  • Activity, hobbies,new skills and good friends at our Coffee and Computers Club
  • Sorting,recycling,and swapping kids’ clothes for free,at our Clothing Exchange
  • Joining the Zest for Life family for lunch plus food to take home.


The Octagon's upkeep and free community events are paid for mostly through fundraising. By offering a great fundraising idea or helping at one of our regular events, you'll be making an invaluable difference, keeping The Octagon financially afloat, allowing us to do great work within the Malvern community.

Start a community project or club

Got a great idea that we haven't thought of? Get in touch. We might be able to provide the space and resources you need.You could make a big difference to the experiences people have at The Octagon. 


 The Management  Committee

This is where the big decisions are made. Our experienced committee meet every six weeks and decide how The Octagon is run. Most members also hold their own community events and have individual responsibilities such as private hire bookings, maintainance of the hall, or this website!

Whatever your age or interests, you have something special to offer others. The Octagon is the best place to do it!
