The Busselton Jetty celebrated the work of its volunteers last week with an appreciation luncheon as part of Volunteer Week.

About 100 jetty volunteers attended the annual lunch at Woody Nook Winery on Friday.

Busselton Jetty chief executive Lisa Shreeve said the volunteer hosts were an important part of the Jetty welcome.

“We say they are like the face of Busselton,” she said.

“They greet the tourists, chat to people and give recommendations.

“They are just a nice social group of people who give their time back to the communi-ty.”

Jetty community development co-ordinator Karen Mavay said the volunteers were very committed and always greeted visitors with a smile.

“Our group of volunteers are all very committed, we are definitely lucky to have them a part of the Busselton Jetty community,” she said.

“This luncheon is to thank them for the work they put in all year round and particularly during summer.”

Ms Shreeve said the Jetty volunteers also hosted an array of community events, including the third annual Longest Morning Tea for the Cancer Council which will take place this Sunday.

The Longest Morning Tea will run from 10am-noon, with tea and coffee provided. Tickets are $3 with all proceeds supporting the Cancer Council.

A raffle will be held on the day, with prizes including a 43-inch LED TV donated by Retravision, a Fox Glass necklace and two Stan Davies prints.
