Sculthorpe Moors Volunteers Celebrate Christmas

Sculthorpe Moor Nature Reserve celebrates Christmas

On Friday 4th December, a large group of the volunteers from Sculthorpe Moor Community Nature Reserve got together at The Hourglass pub in Sculthorpe to celebrate together with their partners at the annual Christmas Meal.  It was well attended by both staff and volunteers and all reported to have had a great evening catching up and enjoying the amazing food provided by The Hourglass.  Following the fabulous meal, there was a short ceremony to announce and hand out volunteer certificates marking the number of volunteer days worked throughout 2015.

With over 2000 volunteer days recorded across all of our volunteers, ranging from those working in the visitors centre, to those down on the reserve building and wardening, those assisting with admin duties in the office or those who help out at the Norwich Cathedral Peregrine Watch-point every year, the Hawk and Owl Trust and Sculthorpe Moor would like to say a Very Big Thank You for all your hard work and dedication.  We would not be where we are without you all.  

Please see below for some great photos from the night.
