Why no pic­tures of the vol­un­teers?

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - OPINION -

I READ with de­light the cov­er­age of Armed Forces Day in the Bucks Advertiser and the many fan­tas­tic photos cov­er­ing the whole day.

I was dis­ap­pointed, how­ever, not to see any photos of vol­un­teers, who helped run the day, many ‘on shift’ for up to five hours at a time.

Only hun­dreds, not thou­sands, of vol­un­teers were on duty from Fri­day set-up, all through the ac­tual day to Sun­day close down and with­out these hard­work­ing peo­ple, from ev­ery walk of life and of all ages, this bril­liant, well or­gan­ised and smooth run­ning event could never have hap­pened.

We saw the pho­tog­ra­pher tak­ing photos of vol­un­teers through­out the day; it’s a pity no-one thought them wor­thy enough to pub­lish! SH­ERYL EVERETT

EDITOR’S NOTE: It was our plea­sure to re­port on such a fan­tas­tic event. Un­for­tu­nately, due to space con­straints, we were un­able to pub­lish ev­ery pho­to­graph, but we would like to send our heart­felt thanks and con­grat­u­la­tions to all the vol­un­teers
