Presentation of the Dick Marsh Volunteer Award 2016
At the Volunteer Thank You night on 8th June the Dick Marsh Volunteer Award was presented to Chris Ashford, by one of our Patrons, Colin Buchanan. The award is made in memory of Dick Marsh, a former trustee of the Community Trust who died unexpectedly in 2010. It is given to a volunteer who has made a significant contribution to encouraging others to get involved. Chris has been doing evening patrols for many years. He is the commentator at many Trust events and a member of the Communities Subgroup. He is part of the Picnic Committee and takes a significant role at Santa in the Woods. He became a Trustee in October 2015 and his first task was to co-ordinate all of the volunteers locking the Abbey Road gates. He is pictured with Liz Coleman, who was also presented with the Dick Marsh award on a previous occasion.
The Trust relies so heavily on volunteers for its success that it is wonderful to recognise those who spread their enthusiasm for the Woods to other people and to also ensure we remember those people, like Dick Marsh, who did this in the past.
