Buxton friendship with Woodgate
Buxton friendship grows with support from Woodgate
THE Buxton Friendship Association has given back to a group that always supports the Buxton community.
The association, organisers of the recent classic car show, have made a donation to the Woodgate First Responders.
Event organiser Jim Baron said the Woodgate First Responders provide a fabulous service and they always support Buxton.
“The Buxton Friendship Association would like to donate $200 to the unit for supporting our community events,” he said.
“They provide a great service and the added security if something was to go wrong.
“The Buxton car show was a great success and we intend on hosting the event next year.”
With the great response from the public after the car show, the organisers are confident, next year’s event will be huge.
Public safety during community events can be the biggest headache for organisers and with the support of the dedicated team of volunteers from the Woodgate First Responders unit, Buxton are reassured all safety is first priority.
Barb Menzies proudly received the cheque on behalf of the Woodgate First Responder Unit and it’s team.
Mrs Menzies said it was a surprise gesture and they are very grateful for the donation.
“We enjoy supporting the Buxton community and are happy to continue to help out when we can,” Mrs Menzies said.
