Gold Booster awarded for church's good work
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.
The Boost group is looking for more organisations and individuals to join the initiative. For more information and to sign up as a “GX Booster” visit the Boost page at www. gerrardscross.gov.uk
