Volunteers celebrate a year of progress

On Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday of this week, Friends of Preston Park hosted end-of-year celebrations for the three volunteer gardening teams. Some 70 volunteers and guests attended over the three days.

The Chalet Cafe kindly provided coffee and cakes. Councillor Siriol Hugh-Jones joined us on Wednesday and Alan Griffiths, Operations Manager for CityParks on Thursday and, in each case, expressed their gratitude for the splendid contribution made by the volunteers.
