THREE Stotfold residents have been awarded with citizens awards.
Debbie Flanagan and Chris Charge were presented with a joint award for their work with St Mary’s Church of England Academy in Stotfold and Louden Masterton for environmental work. They were presented with their awards at Stotfold’s annual town council meeting earlier this month.
Stotfold mayor Cllr Brian Collier said: “This is the third year of our citizen’s awards which honours the voluntary work that people in Stotfold do.”
Debbie Flanagan was a key member of the steering group which founded St Mary’s after school hours club (SMASH) in 1995, one of the first school-based childcare groups in the country.
Chris Charge has been an active member of the school as both a parent and learning support assistant, working with a child with special education needs.
Louden Masterton was awarded for his long association with environmental projects in the town. He worked with the parish paths partnership scheme to identify and maintain the footpaths, has been involved in the new walks leaflets that have just been launched and also works with Teasel, Stotfold’s conservation group.
The awards are given to residents who have made a valuable contribution to the community.
