Parting Gifts

Tuesday, February 16th 2016

It was another cold and frosty start to the day, though most of yesterday’s snow had disappeared. The volunteers soon got warmed up cutting down some more of the straggly Hawthorns up in the woodland and dragging them towards the bonfire.

At lunchtime, everyone returned to the field centre for a fantastic spread in the classroom.

Sophie, our new chairperson of the Foxglove Management Group gave a short speech and vote of thanks to Matt and presented him with a bottle of Whisky.

Lisa then presented Matt with a card and a gift from the volunteers.

Thank you to everyone who came today either to help out or just to say their goodbyes, your thoughts and actions are much appreciated.  And of course a big thank you to Matt, who has worked really hard to make Foxglove the special place it is.  He will be much missed.
