A group of 30 volunteers from a wide range of charities and community groups came from across West Devon to the beautiful setting of Roadford Lake for a delicious celebratory Cream Tea on 5 June during Volunteers Week 2019. The Mayor of West Devon, Cllr Tony Leech kindly presented each individual volunteer with a personalised certificate of thanks, including one to his surprised but delighted wife, herself a volunteer! The participants commented that it was great to meet like-minded people and to share stories of their volunteering.
Okehampton & District Community Transport and TASS provided transport, with their respective drivers also receiving certificates. The staff of South West Lakes at Lakeside Cafe looked after everyone very well, leading to a very enjoyable afternoon.
