Thank you to everyone who submitted nominations in January. We have selected one nomination which is highlighted online and in the February issue of the Magazine, out now. Every nomination submitted will be recorded and at the end of 2017 we will celebrate all the volunteers and compile a complete list of groups, projects and organisations which welcome volunteers and their contact details if appropriate. Please continue to nominate volunteers each month, details are on the Year of the Volunteer web page. The next deadline is 5th February.
JANUARY’S NOMINATED VOLUNTEERS ARE:
Members from the Horticultural Society Responsible for the Bulb Plantings & The Station Garden
Begun by the late Arthur Battersby, with 6 large sacks of daffodils and the help of other society volunteers, they planted the bulbs on the frontage along side The North Downs Golf Club. Since then, this group of dedicated volunteers has, along with a contribution from the Parish Council, added to the display of daffodils on the frontage of The North Downs Golf Course as well as The Crescent. Annie Anderson (now Chair of the Society) and Sue Lowndes have expanded the spring time display with snowdrops on The Green. While the Stations Garden, complete with roses and other spring and summer plantings has been passed to the stewardship of the Robersons.
The key planting members include: The Battersbys, The Haines, Sam Whitley, The Lowndes, Annie Anderson, The Williams, and The Robersons.
Plantings take place in late September. If you would like to take part in the planting daffodils along the frontages or snowdrops in The Green, please contact Annie Anderson on 652233.
