Notes from Council Meetings
Community Recognition Awards
At a glittering Community Recognition Awards evening held at Peopleton Village Hall on 8March 2018, Wychavon District Council honoured its community heroes of 2017.
Open to the whole community, the awards give those who have volunteered, coached or helped others in the district a chance to gain well deserved recognition for their efforts in helping to make Wychavon a better place to live and work.
Wychavon’s judging panel read through all of the nominations and the inspirational stories in its search for those people who had done the most to help people of all ages improve their neighbourhood, club, society or community during 2017.
Lifetime Achievement award – there were two awards given here.
The first was to Mr and Mrs Harris of the Coach and Horses pub in Pinvin for all of the time and help they put in to all of the events in Pinvin and raising money for charities.
The second award went to Anne Poulter for all her years of dedication given to the Scouts, but especially to Badsey Beavers.
Tracy Grubb, Community Development Officer at Wychavon District Council, said: “Every category this year was full of very well deserving people who put the needs of others before themselves. It was very hard for the judges to choose the finalists let alone the winners and it just goes to show how many unselfish people dedicate their time and efforts to make others happy and feel included in their communities. I feel very proud that they are part of the Wychavon District.”
