2018 Windmill Hill Big Local Community Awards
September 01, 2018
The inaugural Windmill Hill Big Local Community Awards was held at the town hall in September. There were eight winners on the night, all being recognised for their commitment to the community. In attendance were the Mayor & Mayoress of Halton, local councillor Pauline Hignett, headteacher Paula Newman and St Bert’s Rev Stephen Torr, who was there to accept an award on behalf of Carole Lewis. Following a brief introduction by Chris Featherstone, the ceremony began.
The Windmill Hill Primary School Award was presented to young Katie Roberts for her hard work and amazing attitude during school. Next was former international athlete and AK Elite’s Head Coach Keegan Shard, winning the Young Person’s Award for his commitment to junior sport. Also recognised for their voluntary commitments to the local community was local twins Lewis Jackson & Jordan Jackson. The Outstanding Achievement Award was won by Carole Lewis for her volunteering for St Bert’s and was collected by Rev Stephen Torr on her behalf. Recognition for her outstanding achievement also went to Jean Saunders, for her efforts for the local community over many years. Irene Bramwell was left flabbergasted after receiving the Onward Homes Award. Her approach to welcoming the Syrian families was unique and she played an integral part in helping them settle in and start enjoying life on Windmill Hill.
Last, but certainly not least was the Heart Of Gold Award. The winner was Mary Baines who has raised thousands of pounds for charity. Just 95 years young she runs her charity shop twice a week and has no thoughts of stopping now or in the future!
