Well-deserved recognition for the volunteers who worked tirelessly to stage this year's Cornwall Garden Society’s annual Spring Flower Show have been nominated for the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service.
More than 150 men and women from across the county and beyond undertake a wide variety of tasks to ensure the event’s success including carpentry, catering, stewarding and setting up. Now their efforts have been recognised with an official citation and certificate presented to Cornwall Garden Society representatives by the Lord Lieutenant of Cornwall, Colonel Edward Bolitho, at County Hall.
“I am thrilled that our volunteers’ hard work has resulted in this nomination,” said CGS Chairman Andrew Leslie. “Some of them travel very long distances to come and help us get everything ready and we simply couldn’t put the show on without them. They are remarkable individuals who, together, make up an extraordinary team that really gets things done. On behalf of the CGS committee I would like to take this opportunity to say an enormous thank you to all of them.”
Cornwall Garden Society is one of seven organisations in Cornwall shortlisted for the Queen’s Award. Winners will be announced on 2 June – the Queen’s official birthday.
