THE letters pages last week made me sad. I was disappointed that so many people managed to find fault with the Jubilee celebrations. Contrary to the opinions expressed, this celebration has not been designed by "suits". It has been a long and intensive project led by local volunteers who have worked for over a year to create a memorable and enjoyable event for everybody to enjoy. I am proud to live in a place like Cirencester where people still get involved in their local community. Over the years I have been privileged to work with many volunteers who have joined forces to improve things for the common good. I'm talking about school governors, the Churn Family Fun day, the community plan, the Open Air Pool, the many societies such as the Civic Society, Brownies, the Green Gym, Cadets, Scouts, special school visits to churches, the Christmas lights. The list is long. All these opportunities are created by people who give their time and ask nothing in return.
Most of the people in Cirencester value the contributions of volunteers who seek to make the town the wonderful place it is. Thank you all to those who have worked so hard to make the Jubilee a success! See you there!
