On Saturday 31th October, Cox’s Demesne Community Volunteers organised an event aimed at bringing the community together and letting them know about the work that they had been doing over the past five months to promote volunteering and improve the area.
Over 30 volunteers helped to make the day a success performing tasks such as sending out leaflets, sourcing props, recruiting volunteers, face-painting, taking part in the haunted house as actors and tour guides. A fantastic time was had by volunteers and attendees alike.
