Hello Dears, now we may not have been on the Nature Trail this week, but our group of volunteers have still been busy. Well, to start off with, Myself and Emma went to Nunnery Wood High School, we delivered an animal and plant survey session to a group of students. I have to say, it's been six years since I last walked out of those schools doors, and I've always said I'd never go back, now here I am teaching a class there.
Also, this week we had an event at the University, "Skills for tomorrow" they call it. Groups of school kids from all over the county come along and have a natter with different green organisations, and green careers. The kids were more interested in the stalls giving out free sweets and edible crickets, yes dears there were a family handing out crickets, mind you they were nice. But the highlight of the event would have to be us having ago on some man's double decker, the bus that is. It was an 1950's bus, I felt like Reg Varney, and we had ago on the horn. We ended the day by having a picnic down by the river, so sweet.
But that's still not all dears, on the Thursday evening there was a volunteer celebration at the Hive. Well I was there to pick up a certificate for a 'Young Volunteer Of The Year' finalist. The lovely folk at Roots had nominated me for all my hard work, well I was tickled pink I can tell you. No, I didn’t win, but to make it down to the final four with three other young people doing such wonderful work around Worcester was just fantastic. I did have a lucky night, I had ago on the raffle, as you do, and I won the top prize, a cricket bat signed by all the 2016 squad.
Well after that busy week, we all needed a good rest I can tell you. Goodnight All.
