On Thursday 7 December, the Council’s annual Volunteer Coffee Morning event made a long-awaited return, bringing together local individuals and groups who selflessly give up their time to help make their local communities a better place to live and visit.
The event has not taken place since 2019, but this year made a bigger and better return with over 80 guests welcomed at the Spotlight Theatre in Hoddesdon.
Representatives from the Council’s Adopt-A-Street scheme, Neighbourhood Watch, volunteers from Lowewood Museum, the Borough’s Friends Groups, the Goffs Oak Community Library and the Health Walk Volunteer Leaders, were in attendance.
As a token of appreciation, guests were treated to a festive spread of snacks, tea and coffee, and received a warm welcome from the Mayor of Broxbourne Council, Councillor Paul Seeby and Leader of the Council, Councillor Lewis Cocking.
Councillor Lewis Cocking shared words of appreciation, stating:
“Volunteers are the heroes of the community making invaluable contributions to the areas they live in, supporting the work of the Council in different areas. On behalf of the Council and the residents of the Borough I would like to thank each and every one of you for the support you provide, not only to the Council, but to other organisations and the residents of the Borough. Whether you are involved on a regular basis or just now and then – your work really does make a difference and provides huge benefits for the community”.
