We like to keep a tidy yard, office and club room at Ravelrig, not sparkling because let’s be honest, there’s too much mud and hay for that to be possible. However, Harris was giving us a helping hand or tongue today and giving the window in the office a good clean.
We had a great work party from Lloyds Banking Group last week who worked their socks off for us at Ravelrig. Here’s what Michelle, one of the team had to say about it.
“Please extend our thanks to everyone at RDA, particularly Sally and John, for our warm welcome and fun filled day of volunteering. Most of the team have previously volunteered at Ravelrig and we were delighted to be asked back again this year!
After a quick cup of tea and briefing on the day ahead, 2 of our team volunteers (Mark and Dougie) headed off into the fields with John to mend some fences and the remainder of the group (Karen, Linda, Jaclynn, Scott, Tom and Michelle) were put to work sanding and painting the outside buildings in preparation for the winter months.
The weather was very kind to us and we enjoyed a very productive day in the autumn sunshine and were lucky enough to meet the lovely Harris too! Thanks again and we hope to see you all again soon!”
Ravelrig takes a lot of maintenance, from looking after the horses health and well-being to making sure the vehicles, fences and buildings are fit for purpose. This all takes time and energy and we are so grateful to these individuals and businesses who come and help at Ravelrig.
Here’s the team with their newest member Harris!
