I have been so inspired by all the volunteers within all these groups. You bring a variety of skills and knowledge combined with commitment to improve your local communities. It has been a delight and privilege to watch you grow and develop over the last nine months.
The passion, commitment and determination of all your volunteers means your local parks and green spaces are attractive, welcoming and thriving places to be for local residents.
Thank you for all that you do. You make our cities and towns better places in which to live!"
There are so many ways you can get involved this #VolunteersWeek, from joining us in a park to volunteering.
You can enable us to support more community groups by leaving a gift in your Will so our future generations can enjoy and benefit from green spaces too.
