THE ST James Church of Ger­rards Cross and Ful­mer has re­ceived a com­mu­nity and en­vi­ron­men­tal award.

Ger­rards Cross Town Coun­cil Boost Group handed out a gold Booster award to the church be­cause the award recog­nises or­gan­i­sa­tions and in­di­vid­u­als who vol­un­teer their ser­vices to the town for keeping the ar­eas out­side of their premises clean and tidy.

The award also recog­nises sup­port­ing the Ger­rards Cross Traders As­so­ci­a­tion in the or­gan­i­sa­tion of hang­ing bas­kets, planters and Christ­mas lights and sup­port­ing other com­mu­nity events and ini­tia­tives in the vil­lage.

It has also been awarded to Tesco, the Girl Guide As­so­ci­a­tion and the Crowne Plaza ho­tel.

Di Row­land­son, a cu­rate at St James, said: “We are very happy to sup­port this ini­tia­tive and are thrilled to re­ceive this award. Serv­ing our lo­cal com­mu­nity is one of our key val­ues and we are al­ways keen to find ways to of­fer prac­ti­cal help and to be in­volved in lo­cal events.”

Chris Brown, chair­man of the town coun­cil, pre­sented the award to mem­bers of the St James Gar­den­ers group in recog­ni­tion of their work to keep the church’s grounds im­mac­u­late all year round.
