Peter Gaines is the sole remaining active volunteer from the band of people who set up the group in 1974 – 75 and he has decided to retire from the committee with effect from 31st December this year. Peter has been a volunteer with this group for 44 years during which time he has organised week-end visits, ran an injured bird hospital, and been a committee member for 15 years. In 2016 he was presented with an award by the RSPB for 40 years official volunteering for our national body.

At our recent social meeting, Kate Titford, group leader, presented Peter with a card, book, seasonal hamper and framed scroll thanking him for his services. The scroll was designed by another committee member, Ayla Paul.
