Every year, close to Christmas-time, the Countryside Rangers hold an event for all of the volunteers who work at our sites, including Hinchingbrooke Country Park, Holt Island, Godqmanchester Community Nursery, Sudbury Meadow, Barford Road Pocket Park and, or course, Paxton Pits Nature Reserve.
The purpose of the gathering is to say a huge thank-you to all of the amazing characters who turn up every week, rain or shine, to plant, harvest, build, prune, trim or make tea. These people are our inspiration. They are the driving force that pushes us all forward to achieve far more than we would without them. What’s more, they really know how to party!
This year’s event was held at Hinchingbrooke Country Park. It was basically a kids’ tea-party for grown ups, including games, dressing-up and a massive Nerf-gun fight. As always, our volunteers rose to the occasion splendidly.
