Volunteer of the Year? – Village Life

He may be in his eighties, but Narla long-time resident, Frank O’Grady, likes to keep busy.

With his wife Jenny, they are responsible for creating and looking after some of the nicest parts of the village gardens.
The fountain is located next to the rotunda, and had been unused until recently when the pump was repaired. It is very popular with the birds in this hot weather, acording to Frank. But keeping it clean requires some agility.
First step is emptying the dirty water, followed by a good scrub, then finally some fresh water. Well done, and ‘Thank You’ Frank.
The rotunda is a lovely spot to go and sit at any time, and now you can watch the restful water moving..
