West Parley Volunteer Awards 2017 and Garden Competition Winners
8 November 2017
West Parley recognises Kate Ward's contribution.
At a recent reception jointly hosted by West Parley Parish Council and the Residents Association Kate Ward was presented with the 2017 "Volunteer of the Year" award.
In September 2013 Kate was instrumental in setting up the Neighbourhood Car Scheme which provides essential transport to appointments for residents aged 55 and over who can no longer drive.
Parish Council Vice Chairman Cllr John Dinsdale in making the award congratulated Kate and her team who have now completed in excess of 2800 journeys.
The scheme’s co-ordinator Clive Butcher received a gift voucher for his most valued contribution within the community. A further voucher was presented to Marilyn Bennett in recognition of her efforts in helping to maintain the appearance of the village.
Prizes were also presented to winners of this year's garden competition by the RHS judges Sue Collins and Gwynne Davies who kindly judged this year's entries.
