They all should be awarded the MBE


Comment by Kath Pressey on 19th June 2013 at 08:58
well done!


Comment by Janice on 19th June 2013 at 09:24
Well done to all the volunteers. Good to see that someone cares. Really must go and have a game!


Comment by pat on 19th June 2013 at 11:01
A huge thank you to all the volunteers. Yes, they should be acknowledged in some way. Good on them!!


Comment by Garry on 19th June 2013 at 13:54
Yes wonderful people volunteers, but remember most have retiered and are probably bored anyway.People like me who is an electrician by trade, can't find the time.


Comment by Ellen on 19th June 2013 at 16:52
A great job is done by volunteers, congratulations to them,and gratitude for this and all volunteer projects.

.....Garry, your youth is showing! Never think that because one is retired,one is bored or inactive.Many volunteers are still working, but retirement does NOT mean the same thing as put aside,inactive or never, ever useless or only of use for the things none of "the others"can find time for!


Comment by Mike (Calgary) on 19th June 2013 at 19:23
Those guys (Friends of Haigh Country Park) have done a lot of work in their free time restoring the crazy golf and fending off the potential sale of Haigh Hall. Great work guys.

Had a game with my grandaughter a couple of week back, it was brilliant and the payment was a voluntary contribution, my hubby even got a cuppa, went passed it today and they have now put new greens on the holes looking great, thankyou well done to all the volunteers.


Comment by Ellen on 20th June 2013 at 00:24
I apologise for my previous remarks! The mood must have caught me at a sensitive 'senior moment'! I didn't mean it to be so abrasive!


Comment by Garry on 20th June 2013 at 08:13
I think you were referring to me Ellen, I was just saying how wonderful volunteers are in whatever they do. I would love to help out in projects I like, but haven't got the time, maybe one day I will. Sorry to all about the "boring word" used in my previous comment.


Comment by Jean F (Wales) on 20th June 2013 at 20:15
Well done to all the good workers.Hope their hard work is recognised.


Comment by Ellen on 22nd June 2013 at 04:40
Garry, as I said before,I'm sorry for the really abrasive tone of my first remark, it wasn't my style, really. I just had an incident with one of my grandchildren, which made me a little touchy, I should not have reacted so badly. I do understand the time limits imposed by a career in public service!

Mavis it was a pleasure to make a cuppa for your Husband,though it is not something that we normaly do,but it eas a rather sunny day and he looked like he needed a brew .


Comment by Barry Cusick (Treasurer) F O H C P on 26th July 2013 at 12:45
Comment by Garry on the 19th june ,i am one of the volentiers in the photo and contrary to you views made i do work FULL TIME ,but yet still find the TIME to do Volentry Work . It,s a matter of Prioritising your time and Giving Something "Back to the Future"if you Pardon the Punn !.
