Residents’ & Young Citizens’Awards 2021

Northop Community Council represents the communities of Northop and Sychdyn villages and the Chairman Cllr Pauline Lawton-Hughes is pleased to announce the launch of this year’s Awards to residents for their contribution to the community.

There were two awards for outstanding achievement/voluntary service:

• The Young Person’s Award for an individual aged 16 and under;

• The Citizen’s Award for an individual aged over 16;

The Young Person’s Award has been established to recognise an outstanding personal achievement or contribution to the community.

The Citizen’s Award was established to recognise outstanding contributions to the community through voluntary work.

The Residents’ Award was won by Mr Tim Tanton & Mrs Stella Tanton for all their hard work during the pandemic and for going above and beyond to assist members of the local Community.

The Young Citizens’ Award was won by Rowan Baker, Joe Jones and Osain Hampton who had independently organised a fundraising activity during the pandemic and raised £1200 for the mental health charity, Young Minds.

The Chair commented that “Volunteers who help others and thus improve the quality of life for local individuals and/or those in the wider Community Council area, make a significant contribution to our well-being. Members of Northop Community Council wish to recognise this contribution and to recognise the personal achievements of younger residents” and thanked the local community for their nominations, all of which were worthy and congratulated the award winners.

A short presentation was held outside the Edith Bankes Memorial Hall on Sunday 2nd May, with certificates and gifts being awarded to the recipients by Councillor Marion Bateman.
