As a thank you, I took my two key volunteers for lunch to present them with their certificates.
Annie has taken part in multiple river/lake clean-ups in Bedlinog, Treharris, Edwardsville and Taf Fechan. Annie has successfully completed our river restoration qualification, Brusher and Strimmer training with Forest Park and Gardens. Annie has used the skills she has acquired through volunteering with us to secure meaningful employment with Mind, working with the homeless in Merthyr. Annie is now also in the process of setting up her own volunteer group in Treharris Park.
Bruce has taken part in river clean-ups, as well as tackling invasive Himalayan Knotweed at Treharris Park. Bruce has successfully completed our river restoration qualification, Brusher and Strimmer training with Forest Park and Gardens. Bruce is using the skills acquired volunteering with his local group Welcome to Our Woods, running horticultural sessions at their allotments to improve community health and wellbeing.
