Mayor of Reading says ‘Thank You’ to all RESCUE volunteers
Following the great effort over a number of years by hundreds of volunteers, the Mayor invited representatives from business, community clean up teams and RBC waste services to personally say ‘thank you’ for their commitment and effort towards keeping Readings environmental spaces clean.
The Mayors reception took place on Septeber 3rd 2013 in the Mayors Parlour, Civic Centre. Mayor Marian Livingstone enjoyed personally meeting and thanking volutneers for their contribution. The volunteers were also pleased to be thanked in this way and said it was a priviledge to be invited to such an event.
A valuable networking event for some groups too as RESCUE volunteers discussed ways to work together during clean up events.
