MAK­ING a dif­fer­ence to the com­mu­nity comes nat­u­rally to the peo­ple of Deep­ing St James, if the num­ber of nom­i­na­tions for the vil­lage’s com­mu­nity awards is any in­di­ca­tion.

Deep­ing St James Parish Coun­cil or­gan­ised the Mak­ing A Dif­fer­ence awards, which recog­nised peo­ple such as John Mon­crief, who drives a bus for Help the Aged and Nel­lie, his wife, a com­mit­ted helper at the Methodist Church.

They were run­ners up in the Cit­i­zen to Most Make a Dif­fer­ence award, won by Les­ley Den­nis, who has en­thu­si­as­ti­cally run the 2nd Deep­ing St James Guides for more than 15 years.

Her daugh­ter Helen Marie Den­nis said: “Not only does my mum hold down a busy job at Deep­ing St James Com­mu­nity Pri­mary School but she has set up this se­nior sec­tion of the Guides, fundrais­ing, teach­ing crafts and be­ing there for the girls who en­joyed the Guides so much they did not want to leave.”

Alex Don­nelly won the Young Per­son to Most Make a Dif­fer­ence Award, nom­i­nated by Paul Han­son, a youth worker at the Deep­ings Youth Cen­tre. Run­ners-up in the Com­mu­nity Group to Most Make a Dif­fer­ence were the DSJ WI and the Round Ta­ble who raise funds for dis­tri­bu­tion to good causes at home and abroad. The win­ners, cel­e­brat­ing their 25th year, were the Gang Show or­gan­is­ers.
