Awards Evening 2022

Crew and guild members and their friends and families met up on a lovely summer evening to recognise the long service of some of our volunteers, the first such event for several years and covering achievements not just for 2022 but in 2021 and prior years. Our thanks to all who helped to support and organise the event, and to Wells Community Hospital for use of their Hive cafe and gardens. A bar and barbeque followed.
