LNP News: Celebrating Our Local Heroes

Wednesfield and Fallings Park Local Neighbourhood Partnership recently had an evening celebrating and thanking the unsung heroes of the local community.

The inaugural ‘Local Heroes Award’ evening was held at Edward the Elder School and was attended by around 150 local people.  The categories included volunteer, Good Neighbour, Young Achiever and Team; awards were given to those that had gone the ‘extra mile’ for their community.

The evening was kept on track thanks to Rev Simon Mansfield, Chair of the Local Neighbourhood Partnership and Jan Hickman, LANA co-ordinator.  Wednesfield High School Gospel Choir provided superb entertainment during the evening.

The judging panel were overwhelmed with the number and standard of entries and had great difficulty in choosing a winner, but they eventually decided on:

  • Volunteer – John Lees, Wolverhampton Utd FC
  • Good Neighbour – Jean Shinton
  • Young Achiever -  Preety Kaur
  • Team – Wednesfield FC Colts, Under 9’s

Wednesfield and fallings Park LNP would like to congratulate all of the winners and also thank all those that made the evening such a success.  Special thanks should also go to Nick Cunliffe headteacher at Edward the Elder School.
