Trophy success is on the menu for Sally

COMMUNITY-MINDED residents were recognised for their selfless contribution at the Diamond Jubilee Community Recognition Awards.

The annual award ceremony, which was held at Wychavon Civic Centre in Pershore, saw Town and Parish Councils nominate one or more people who they think have made a real difference.

District Council Chairman Coun Frances Smith awarded Sally Brown with a trophy and a cheque for £200.

Sally, who started the Bredon Luncheon Club ten years ago, was nominated by Bredon’s Norton and Westmancote Parish Council.

Mainly self-funded, the volunteer-led club organise a monthly two course meal at the local village hall for parish residents in a bid to fight against loneliness, especially in the elderly. The last event attracted up to 40 residents.

In second place was John-Paul ‘JP’ Bradley who was nominated by Dodderhill Parish Council for his hard work in assisting the council, picking up litter and walking the pets of people who are poorly.

In third place were Mark and Gemma Jones, who were also nominated by Dodderhill Parish Council. They were commended for their commitment in maintaining a speed camera sign in Wychbold Village.

“Congratulations to our winner Sally Brown, as well as our runners up and other nominees,” said Coun Smith.

“It is brilliant to see such selfless people dedicating their time to the wonderful communities within our district. I would like to encourage more Town and Parish Councils to take part next year by sending in their nominations.”
