Coffee Morning and Afternoon Leaves
Thursday, November 3rd 2016
Today was our off-site coffee morning in Richmond Town Hall on the Market Square. There is a lot that goes into getting this up and running and as always a team of volunteers called Team Cappuccino pull out all the stops to make this happen.
It is not just the coffee that is poured, but bric-a brac, home produce, tombola, and raffle. We would like to thank Tony Cooper for organising this event and bringing all components together.
These are his words –
“Team Cappuccino would like to express their sincere thanks and appreciation to everyone who helped in any way at today’s coffee morning , nurturing plants, providing cash donations and items for sale or raffle, supporting the event and most particularly by setting up, manning the door and stalls, and cleaning up afterwards.
After deducting expenses and the hire of the hall there was a healthy profit of £382.97”
With the event over we returned to the reserve to put away the various items and get on with the rest of the day. The first job was to get the silage sheet, brought in by Charlie, to act as a weed suppresser on the invasive New Zealand Pigmyweed which we have had a full on blitz this year in an attempt to eradicate it from one small isolated pond on the reserve.
This Frog was caught on our black sheet we had just put down.
While we limited the foot fall on the area to avoid speading the pond weed John was dealing with the fallen leaves on the paths.
Thanks again on behalf of the management to ALL that attended our coffee morning and gave up their time to assist, and to all volunteers who stayed at the resverve doing the day to day jobs.
