Some of the winners of the 2012 Community Awards

Five people from the parish of Stoke Gifford were among 28 unsung heroes honoured at last week’s South Gloucestershire Community Awards evening in Filton.

Kieran Coggins, Jessica Godsell and Dennis Richardson (all of Little Stoke) were joined by Natalie Downing and Andrew Phelps (both of Stoke Gifford) in receiving Chair’s Community Awards at a special ceremony held at BAWA last Thursday (29th March).

The awards honour people give up their time freely to help others and bring communities together.

The Chair of South Gloucestershire Council, Cllr Mike Drew presented the main awards and he was joined by Dame Janet Trotter, the Lord Lieutenant of Gloucestershire, who presented a special award to two of the volunteers.

Cllr Mike Drew said:

“I was amazed at the incredible commitment shown by all the volunteers. Their work makes a significant contribution to the quality of life of so many people within the South Gloucestershire community. Without them, community life in our area would be much poorer.”

He added:

“I was also delighted that this year we again had a number of young volunteers.”
