THANK YOU EVENT
The Thornton-le-Dale volunteers thank you event and Village Hall open day were a great success – thank you to all those volunteers that helped to prepare for the event and assisted on the day. We hope that you had the opportunity to enjoy a complimentary cuppa and fancy cupcake as a small gesture to thank volunteers in the village for all that they do. The event was organised by the Hub and Village Hall committees, but thanks goes to all volunteers within all Thornton-le-Dale groups for the fabulous work they undertake that makes our community so great. The plaque below was presented by Paddy Chandler of NYCC and Cllr Janet Sanderson to further thank the TLD volunteers for their work during the pandemic.
A copy of the plaque is currently on display in the noticeboard by the pond, but where do you think we should install it permanently? The Village Hall has already been suggested, but further suggestions gratefully received – let us know by the end of November if you have any ideas.
RHS ACHIEVEMENT AWARD
We are delighted to share with you that Thornton-le-Dale Village Hub has won an Achievement Award for their Royal Horticultural Society ‘Cultivating Your Community’ entry this summer. The award celebrates the work of Hub volunteers with activities such as pond surrounds maintenance, planting, litter picking, railing painting, and all other activities that make our environment such an inviting and pleasant one. The RHS commented:
“Your group did incredibly well to continue activities during the pandemic and the volunteers’ commitment and dedication to supporting the community should be commended. It is great that you focused on achievable and manageable projects such as planters, the pond area and managing the nature trail to ensure that the community and visitors continued to enjoy the outdoor environment around the village.”
A huge thank you to all those volunteers that have, and continue to, contribute to these great project activities.
