CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR CONSERVATION VOLUNTEERS
With the aim of honouring the volunteers’ commitment to the project and perhaps to gain a little publicity, we
decided to enter it into the Community section of the Doncaster in Bloom competition. The award ceremony was held on the 12th October at the Mansion House and we attended with little hope of success as the judging took place only a few days after the flowers were planted and they really needed time to develop. However, we enjoyed seeing all the other entries displayed on the screen and thought the photo of our cairn didn’t look totally out of place amongst them, so crossed our fingers and waited.
Imagine our delight then when we heard the Don Gorge Conservation Volunteers Well Project named as the outright winner. Ken Green, one of the volunteers who had done a great deal towards the fulfilment of the project went forward to receive a certificate, vouchers for £20, an engraved trophy and a smaller one which we will keep after the larger one has been returned.
It’s very satisfying for the volunteers to have their work recognised in this way as they work so hard throughout the year and we congratulate them on this very special achievement.
Why not come down and have a look at it.
