3. VOLUNTEERING FOR ALL – Tuesday MacRosty Volunteers

Volunteer and GS van (16)

This blog is about my Tuesday volunteers! Alistair and Dave, both have been volunteering with the council for several years and they are a real asset to us.

The group works autonomously, allowing me to go and set out instruction, show them what to do, then leave them to carry out the work.  They are highly skilled and more than capable of carrying out the work.

Both Dave and Alistair came to the council to build skills and experience whilst looking for employment,  And I am delighted that Dave has since found employment with a local landscaping firm.

They enjoy a range of tasks within the park including weeding, vegetation management, water course management and litter picking. They are invaluable to us and carry out work that we just wouldn’t be able to do otherwise.

They are volunteers definitely worth recognition for Volunteer Week, and I would like to thank them for all their efforts within the park.
