inside  the pheasantAnnette, one of the volunteers, said about the event “It was great to catch up with other volunteers and also to meet new ones. It was also good to take a more in depth look at how YSS evolved and has developed over the years, and to meet trustees and the High Sheriff, who thanked us for our work. The food was lovely and you had all gone to so much trouble to organise such an enjoyable occasion. Thanks again.”

Christine was extremely good, speaking to everyone and she gave a small talk on the High Sheriff’s Office. She was accompanied  by her husband David too.  I think everyone enjoyed the occasion I know I did.”
