It is Volunteer Week!
We had many projects scheduled for this week with local companies such as repainting play areas, planting wildflower seeds, leisure garden maintenance and so on. Unfortunately, due to the pandemic, these have been rescheduled for a later date. Instead, we will continue to recognise our volunteers and their efforts on the community response work and efforts to keep the parish tidy during the pandemic.
Starting with Mark & Lisa who are both employed by the Council. Mark was a key member of the team during the beginning of the pandemic when we were working with reduced staff, now that other staff have returned, Mark continues to work on his usual duties for the Parks & Projects Team. Lisa is the Cleaner/Caretaker and has to take on additional deep cleaning duties for the Community Bus, Parks & Open Spaces Depot and the Council Offices.
As well as their usual duties, they have both been volunteering for Homeground Pharmacy and Swindon Borough Council by delivering medications to the most vulnerable. As they live local to Haydon Wick, they are often called upon out of hours to help out our local residents and we really appreciate their efforts. Thank you and keep up the good work!
