High Sheriff Awards
This was a lovely evening, Tracey Wilson - Chair of Friends of Charnock was nominated for the High Sheriff award for her committment to the community through this project. Tracey was nominated by fellow committee member - Chris. Not only was this felt an opportunity to enter for recognition of works carried out, but was a chance to win £500 for the park funds.
The event was held at Rotherham Town Hall, and was attended by 3 committee members. It was good to meet other groups that were also working voluntarily to bring about changes to their community .
Although Tracey didn't win on the night, she came in the last 9 finalists and got the group recognised, also bringing away a certificate which will again be beneficial to the group when applying for bids , etc.
Tracey was clear though that if it was not for the hard work and dedication of the group as a whole that the project would not have progressed as it has done and she felt that the certificate is for the recognition of the whole group
