At two recent awards ceremonies residents of Stoke St Gregory were recognised for their services to the community. Firstly, Sue Hembrow received the prestigious Somerset County Chairman’s award. Sue was recognised for her long service to the community in roles ranging from the menial to the critical. Her ‘can do’ attitude and dedication were noted in the citation. Secondly David House was awarded Trustee of the Year by CCS (Community Council for Somerset) for his many years of crucial and understated service in the best interests of the Village Hall.

I am sure you will join me in offering them our congratulations as well as thanks and gratitude for their work on all of our behalves.
