Spring Volunteer Day, 13th April 2013

Undeterred by the worsening drizzle and the unpromising date thirteen brave volunteers attended this event. This  ‘hat trick’ of 13’s in April was not enough to put off our intrepid crew!

Many thanks must go to the following for braving the elements:-

Paul Kent of Keep wales Tidy          Simon Collier             Stuart Johnson

Frances Collier                                      Steve Jones                Andrew Collier

Steve Edwards                                       Phil Howells               Stephen Collier

Peter Simmons                                      Sheila Walker             JoeConaghan

After two hours, and looking more like ‘drowned rats’ than community volunteers, it was decided to stop work and defer the remainder of the day’s programme to  a later date when it is hoped the weather will be more favourable.
