Purton Parish Council Recognises Local Volunteers

On Monday 3rd April, Purton Parish Council, recognised its six of its finest local volunteers within its annual Parish Meeting & Awards Evening, at the Village Hall.

Those recognised, were nominated by residents, who witnessed the great value of their contributions.

Voluntary work completed included: cooking at Pips Café; maintaining The Community Fridge; Driving The Age Concern Minibus; working in School Uniform Shop; and supporting Purton Museum.

All the Volunteers were given beautiful bouquets of flowers and certificates, in gratitude and recognition of all their time and hard work. Each volunteer then gave a response to the room, in which they were gracious and humble, noting the value of the volunteer work of others around them.

One volunteer received an overall winner’s trophy, for their outstanding contributions to the Village of Purton. This accolade came after Purton Parish Council received the greatest number of votes ever placed.

Louise Cordas of the Pips Café and Purton Community Fridge was rewarded for all her great efforts in supporting the Community and reducing food waste. When presented with the trophy she was a little taken back at such recognition.

After the presentations, celebratory cake was cut by Louise Cordas, for all to enjoy with a well-earned cuppa.

Deborah Lawrence, Clerk Of Purton Parish Council said:

“Everyone wants a nice place to live. A good quality of life and when needed a little help. These are the people who make this possible in Purton. It’s only right to recognise such great volunteers and all their hard work.”
