Civic awards given to pride of our town
VALUED members of the community were presented with awards for their good work.
Residents collected Civic Awards as part of the Bollington Civic Parade and Service which celebrates what’s good about the town and its people.
Around 200 people paraded through town to the Civic Hall where coun Amanda Stott, town mayor, presented the awards for contributions made to the community.
These went to Jose Spinks and Geoff Atkin who accepted the award on behalf of the Bollington Festival committee – given to acknowledge this year’s successful event.
Chairman Jon Beck was unable to attend.
Heather Cann, 63, picked up an award for her long work with girl guides and her husband George, 69, was awarded for his work with the Macclesfield and District Lions Club which raises money for local causes.
Heather has been involved with Girlguiding for 40 years and is leader of the town’s senior section as well as district commissioner.
She runs freight company Eurobase with George at Adelphi Mill.
The grandmother of one, who lives off Springbank, said: “I was surprised and honoured to receive the award. We didn’t know we were getting them. I enjoy working with guides in the town. The awards are important for recognising the hard work of people in Bollington.”
