Fun, fun, fun at Colmonell

Robert Wilson was given a special presentation at a fun-acked Colmonell fun day this year.

Robert has given a lot of time to the Community Association over the years, and acted as both chair and secretary when the Fun Day was at risk of ending due to lack of volunteers. Many thanks to Robert from the Community Association Committee members.
