On Thursday 16th 2017 we enjoyed a visit from Ledbury’s Mayor, Councillor Debbie Baker to our Site in Ledbury. During the morning she met some of the people who live at Keeper’s Cottage along with the staff who work there. Later she visited some of our Creative Learning activities including the Numeracy and Literacy session shown in the pictures below.

As it’s (nearly) the start of Spring, our Ryelands sheep were due a trim in preparation for the warmer weather. These pictures show Graham and some of the people who attend our Creative Learning animal care sessions shearing the sheep at Pound Farm. To make sure they don’t get chilly before Spring starts properly, you’ll see they have been loaned some woolly jumpers!
Yesterday (6/3/17) our Volunteer Co-ordinator Laura spent the day at The Hereford Academy talking to students about the benefits of volunteering along with working in Health and Social Care as part of their Community Careers Fair. Lots of different organisations and businesses were involved and it was a great opportunity to speak to students and find out their aspirations.
As part of the event, Laura asked students to contribute to a ‘Volunteering Wall’ and write down their ideas about what a volunteer is, what they do, and why they volunteer. We love all of the comments which came back and it was great to see everyone getting involved. Our favourite has to be that a volunteer is someone who ‘Gives Happiness’!

Well done to Jennie who recently completed a sponsored swim to raise money for Salter’s Hill Charity. To do this she swam 30 lengths of her local pool and so far has managed to raise an impressive total of £100 (and donations are still coming in). A great achievement!
Congratulations go to Mary from Ledbury who was recently awarded a certificate and badge for her ten years of service as a volunteer at The British Red Cross shop in the town!
