Cllr Phil King has written thanking all volunteers for their contribution during the COVID pandemic. His letter starts:

“With National Volunteers Week getting underway today (1 June 2020), as Leader of Harborough District Council, I wanted to take this timely opportunity to recognise and pay tribute to all the volunteers who have stepped up and reached out across our communities to lend a hand when and where it was desperately needed, during the current crisis.

Harborough District Council has been working with approximately 400 volunteers in approximately 70 volunteer groups, across the district to respond to the coronavirus pandemic and will continue to do so as we look towards during the recovery phase to get communities, and the local economy, back on track.”
