Gloucester’s Visitor Information Centre (VIC) and National Parks and Wildlife Service (NWPS) celebrate National Volunteers Week with a ‘thank you’ morning tea for its volunteers.

Volunteers gathered at the Meeting Place today (May 11) for some sandwiches and cake after being presented with “a small token of appreciation.”

VIC’s manager tourism, Wendy Hughes thanked all of the volunteers from the centre who make Gloucester a welcoming place for tourists.

She explained that she had recently totalled all the hours put in by the centre volunteers and the Copeland Tops volunteer guides, which came to 5,018 per year.

NPWS area manager Barrington Tops, Anthony Signor also expressed his thanks to the many volunteers who help to make the Copeland Tops guided tour a success.

He said that over 400 people take part in the guided tour every year.
