2010 CITIZENSHIP AWARDS

 

This years Parish Council Citizenship Awards were presented at the Councils Annual Assembly held on the 24th May in the Old School Room.
In a change from past years 2010 has seen a business chosen for recognition for the first time.

Rayne Post Office fills a very important role in the life of the village. If you need a bar of chocolate, road tax, or a package sent to the North Pole Rayne Post Office is the place to go. For many older people the Post Office is a vital lifeline in their daily life. Therefore the Parish council takes great pleasure in recognizing the hard work and dedication that Amrita, Annie and all of the staff put in to keep this essential facility running.


Our second presentation was made to Barry Mouser of Rayne Cricket Club. For more years than he may care to remember Barry has tended and nurtured the Wicket on the playing field. In addition Barry has also worked to maintain the playing field in general. The inscription on his award reads "In recognition of his contribution to the life of the village of Rayne for many years as voluntary groundsman to Rayne Cricket Club"

Our congratulations to all recipients of this years awards.
