We're throwing the spotlight on those kindly giving their time to support us and our communities all week and today we focus on Ivel Valley Conservation Volunteers (IVCV).
A big thanks from us all to all our countryside volunteers, who have been keeping up the hard work to improve and maintain our countryside whenever possible over the last year.
It’s been a hard year with restrictions on numbers but there has been an increase in people accessing the countryside; our loyal group of volunteers have stepped up and worked hard on a wide range of activities with a laugh, a smile and always a piece of cake, whatever the weather has had to throw at us. Thank you.
If you would like more information about joining the IVCV and helping out with countryside volunteering then please get in touch, drop an email to firstname.lastname@example.org

Thank you to all volunteers who support their communities. #volunteers#volunteersweek2021#bedsrccA big, big thank to all our Village Hall and Community Building volunteers and Management Committee Trustees. There are over a 1,000 Trustees from 190 committees looking after our community buildings throughout the Befordshire and they are supported by additional members of the public who carry out the day to day task of running their local hall.
During the pandemic our halls have had to close down and reopen several times during the various stages of lock down. All this involves putting special COVID 19 Secure procedures in place and then interpreting government guidance in order to see what activities are permitted in halls when open.
Trustees are typically older retired residents who may have been self isolating, but who have still participated in supporting their hall and providing a focal point for the community.
The year has been extremely stressful for all involved in what is a voluntary role. On behalf of your community, THANK YOU.
