Valentine’s Day was the perfect day to say “Thank You” and show some love to the long list of wonderful people who have volunteered at St.James’ Park over 2012‑2013. Twenty‑five volunteers in all dropped in and enjoyed tea, coffee, and a Valentine’s cupcake from Love Cake in St.James Road. Everyone who came received a thank you card and a small thank you gift designed especially for St.James’ Park volunteers by Kate Woodley‑Smith.

It was also a really good opportunity for volunteers to meet each other and find out what they do. It was surprising how many people didn’t know each other. It was a lovely sociable time..
