What impression do you have as you walk, cycle or motor through our village? Hopefully of a community that cares about its environment and appearance. Supported by the Parish Council the Shipton Volunteers, instantly recognisable by their burgundy coloured sweat/polo shirts, are a group, comprising around 45 volunteers, whose aim is to maintain, enhance and improve many aspects of the village for the pleasure and enjoyment of all.
Two morning sessions are held each month and participation is welcomed for just part or all of each session. Tasks performed are varied and accommodate all levels of energy and skill so don’t be shy!
During the past 12 months we have:
- Held an annual litter blitz on not only the roads leading into the village but also through the village centre itself,
- weeded, cleared and swept pavements,
- cut hedges and pruned trees,
- tidied the churchyard,
- trimmed back growth and cleared stream beds,
- helped with improvement projects in the Wild Garden,
- assisted at the Village fete and much, much more!
