ON Thursday 9 June, Harlow Council held an event to recognise and thank their volunteers as part of National Volunteers Week.
The event, which was held at the Harlow Playhouse, honoured volunteers who work alongside staff to help provide services. The volunteers include; Housing, Harlow Playhouse, Green Team & Wildspace, Harlow Conservation Volunteers, Friends of Pets’ Corner, Pets’ Corner, Leah Manning Centre, Town Park and Harlow Museum & Walled Gardens.
Approximately 60 volunteers attended the reward ceremony, with each volunteer presented with a certificate by the Chair of Harlow Council, Councillor Andrew Johnson. Speeches were delivered by service managers on the difference volunteers make after which guests tucked into a buffet and a celebratory cake.
There are many opportunities for people to volunteer around the town, from helping to conserve green spaces to looking after the animals at Pets’ Corner.
You will not only be making a very important contribution to Harlow’s community and wildlife, but will also have the opportunity to learn new skills and meet new people.
