Leigh-on-Sea Town Council invited local volunteers to enjoy a special afternoon tea at Leigh Community Centre to say thank you for the work they do in the community. The event was part of the national celebration, Volunteers Week, which is held every year from 1st – 7th June.
As well as the Council’s own volunteers, helpers were invited from Leigh Heritage Centre, St. John’s Ambulance, Leigh Lions, Leigh British Legion, Litter-Less Leigh, Friends of Leigh Library Gardens and the local churches.
A delicious afternoon tea was provided by local caterers "The Party Kitchen” and easy-listening entertainment was provided by "The Ray Miso Trio,” a recently formed jazz group, comprised of local musicians, including Cllr Keith Evans.
The Town Council plan to make this celebration an annual event, to ensure local volunteers are given a deserved treat.
