Volunteers’ Soirée 2013 – On Wednesday, June 5, as part of the national celebration , Volunteers’ Week 2013, the committee organised a social soirée for the volunteers in the Heritage Centre. Unfortunately, due to ill health, Historic Ryde Society Gloria Minghella, was unable to be present.

Over twenty volunteers, old and brand new, arrived for a glass of fizzy and some nibbles. This was also a chance to catch up with other volunteers and meet some new volunteers for the first time.

Liz-talks---volsChairperson Liz Jones told the volunteers how grateful Historic Ryde Society is for their time and commitment to the group. The Heritage Centre couldn’t run without them. As we move forward into Phase Three, it is more vital than ever that the momentum is maintained. The commitment of the group strengthens the support in the wider community.

A great surprise was the arrival of a County Press photographer, who had heard about the event. She came down to the Centre to take a photograph of the occasion. Keep a lookout for a photograph in the County Press this coming Friday, June 14. The photograph below shows HRS chair Liz thanking the volunteers.
