Winners of this years Good Citizens Awards

The Citizen of the Year award went to Margaret Horn from Moulton, near Spalding. After retiring from Suffolk in 1993, she quickly threw herself into village life and now, at the grand age of 84, is still going strong.

As one of the longest-serving members of the Moulton Community Association, she has been at the forefront of raising funds for the maintenance of the local community centre and village hall. She also plays an integral part at All Saints Church, as verger, relief organ player, choir leader, gardener and member of the Pastoral Care Team offering support to those in need.

The Pair/Couple award this year went to animal lovers Steve and Judy Godrich. For the past seven years, they have given up much of their time to look after the welfare of horses, ponies, donkeys and mules at Bransby Horses, north of Saxilby.

Initially, they helped behind the scenes with administration, fundraising, gardening and selling items in the organisation’s tack shop.

Now they are fully-fledged ambassadors, meeting visitors, showing them round and explaining the charity’s work.

Winner of the Community Group award went to Louth and District Voluntary Car Service, a vital lifeline for older people and those with mobility issues. The scheme has been made possible thanks to an army of more than 100 volunteers, who use their own cars to take local people to both essential and social appointments.

And finally we have the Young citizen award which went to Sian Parker. Since 2011, 15-year-old Sian has developed from being a member of her youth group, Branston Escape, to becoming a young leader. Over this time, she has taken up leadership roles within the club, joining the young persons’ committee and steering group.
