On Monday 9 December we welcomed our wonderful volunteers to Brockholes Nature Reserve to celebrate the monumental effort and commitment they give to the Trust throughout the year. We provided a beautiful Christmas dinner, and members of Trust staff became waiters and waitresses for the afternoon to say thank you for everything the volunteers do. It was a brilliant team effort.
It was wonderful to see so many of our marvellous volunteers getting into the festive spirit, and to see the reserve bathed in stunning winter sunshine after a run of rainy days. To top it off, the evening ended with a beautiful starling murmuration, so stunning, in fact, that it was shared by the BBC North West Facebook page!
