Fingers crossed for our most dedicated volunteer Richie Jones who has been shortlisted for the national Volunteer of the Year award in the wildlife category. Richie has an outstanding BCV attendance of 74 events in the last 6 years and has been a dedicated member of the BCV committee since it was established. Not only is he passionate about archaeology but he has a great love of walling, scrub clearing and generally working in the outdoors.
Good luck Richie, you deserve to win!
Also, well done to the BCV for being shortlisted for An Taisce’s Ocean Hero’s award in the ‘event of the year’ category. April saw a group of over 30 volunteers (BCV, local scouts, Galway Bay sea anglers and the Clare Outdoor Club) gathered at Fanore beach to clear a whopping 3/4 tonne of marine litter. The winner will be announced on Dec 1st in Dublin.
