Awards night for con­tri­bu­tion to vil­lage life at an­nual meet­ing

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Neighbourhood News -

MORE than 100 peo­ple cel­e­brated vil­lage life at an an­nual meet­ing.

The Deep­ing St James Parish Coun­cil held its an­nual meet­ing on Tues­day last week with the Mak­ing A Dif­fer­ence awards.

Lo­cal leg­end and in­ter­na­tional darts cham­pion Martin ‘Wolfie’ Adams pre­sented the awards to peo­ple and or­gan­i­sa­tions which have made an out­stand­ing con­tri­bu­tion to the vil­lage.

This year’s young per­son’s award was pre­sented to Josh Han­nen, and Bob Par­menter won the cit­i­zen cat­e­gory.

The Deep­ings U3A was the or­gan­i­sa­tion recog­nised as mak­ing the most dif­fer­ence in the vil­lage.

Coun­cil­lor Phil Dilks, chair­man of the parish coun­cil, said: “The coun­cil was de­lighted with the turnout, which has been in­creas­ing steadily in re­cent years.

“We were also hum­bled by the num­ber of in­di­vid­u­als and or­gan­i­sa­tions who work tire­lessly in their dif­fer­ent ways to main­tain the mar­vel­lous com­mu­nity spirit within our vil­lage.”

The meet­ing also heard re­ports from more than a dozen or­gan­i­sa­tions in­clud­ing Deep­ing St James Scouts who re­ported back from an in­ter­na­tional jam­boree held in Swe­den. Their trip had been partly funded by the parish coun­cil.
