Wednesfield and Fallings Park Local Neighbourhood Partnership recently had an evening celebrating and thanking the unsung heroes of the local community.
The inaugural â€˜Local Heroes Awardâ€™ evening was held at Edward the Elder School and was attended by around 150 local people.Â The categories included volunteer, Good Neighbour, Young Achiever and Team; awards were given to those that had gone the â€˜extra mileâ€™ 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.Â 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 â€“ John Lees, Wolverhampton Utd FC
- Good Neighbour â€“ Jean Shinton
- Young Achiever -Â Preety Kaur
- Team â€“ Wednesfield FC Colts, Under 9â€™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.Â Special thanks should also go to Nick Cunliffe headteacher at Edward the Elder School.
