Volunteer Day 8th June

Another fabulous turn-out for our volunteer’s morning which was helped by the passing over of predicted rain clouds to be a fabulous, sunny day.

  • Team Tony in the pub building cleaned up the brick work as much of this will be left exposed;
  • Team John were sanding and prepping walls in the school room;
  • Team Ian were deep in the cellar washing walls;
  • Team Courtyard were shifting all the hardcore and moving wood and rubbish ready for the BBQ later:
  • Team Strippers were wood stripping and wire stripping aplenty;
  • Team Clean were cleaning bathrooms and bedrooms.

It is great to feel the community spirit in these volunteering mornings and to see so many of our regulars taking a pride in helping out and making new friends.

We were thrilled to receive more plants from Pamela and Richard – many were sold during the morning session and the others further bolstered the evening’s takings.
