Winners of the inaugural Horsham District Volunteers Awards were announced at a special presentation ceremony as part of The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations in Horsham’s Carfax. Horsham District Council wanted to recognise and reward the exceptional work of local volunteers during The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebration week which also coincided with Volunteers Week. Congratulations to the Henfield Haven Volunteers won the ‘Dream Team Award’ as a collective for their wonderful work keeping the community centre running smoothly.
Commenting on the awards and winners, Horsham District Council Cabinet Member for Community Matters Cllr Liz Kitchen said: “I am delighted that we have introduced these awards to give residents the opportunity to nominate people or groups who have really made a difference to communities in our District over the years, and most recently, as we have gone through some of the toughest times we have ever known. It is fantastic that their contribution and the amazing work they do is being recognised in this way, during the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee and Volunteers’ Week. Their dedication and commitment to their voluntary work does much to transform the quality of many people’s lives locally.”
