Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - PRIDE OF BUCKS 2015 -

A HARD-WORK­ING church war­den has been nom­i­nated for a Pride of Bucks award.

Jacky Rus­sell, of Ad­di­son Road, Che­sham, is about to com­plete her six years as church war­den of St Mary’s Church, in

Com­mu­nity cham­pion – spon­sored by Nunn Hay­ward Church Street, Che­sham. Mrs Rus­sell has been nom­i­nated by vicar of St Mary’s Rev­erend Simon Cans­dale.

He said: “Jacky is bril­liant and great fun to work with. She’s ex­cel­lent with peo­ple, or­gan­is­ing count­less ro­tas, ser­vices, big events, al­ways serene.

“She’s gifted as an artist (best car­toons in Che­sham!) and in get­ting the best out of other cre­ative peo­ple. Qui­etly car­ing - vis­it­ing, phon­ing, email­ing and mak­ing sure peo­ple are okay.

“She’s un­be­liev­ably hard-work­ing, thor­ough and on the ball. She’s per­sua­sive and charm­ing - get­ting the whole com­mu­nity in­volved.

“She’s a con­stant source of fun, jokes, dread­ful puns and de­light­ful dashes of mis­chief. She’s help­ing St Mary’s to be a grow­ing and wel­com­ing church. Thank you Jacky.”
