West Parley Volunteer Awards 2011

West Parley Parish Council held a reception on October 28th 2011 in the Memorial Hall to honour the volunteers who work tirelessly in the village on behalf of all residents. The Council is very proud to have approximately 100 volunteers who assist in improving the appearance of our village by doing a variety of tasks and we are very pleased to have this opportunity to pay tribute to their efforts. The reception was attended by over 50 of the volunteers, by all Parish Councillors and both District Councillors. The main guest was Mr Christopher Chope MP who presented awards to the Volunteers of the Year

The Parish Council values the efforts of each and every one of our volunteers but the awards were made to the residents who represent all of the members of the various volunteer groups.
