Good Citizens Awards 2017

The winners have now been announced in the Good Citizens Awards 2017.

The winners of this year's Good Citizens Awards have now been presented with their awards at the Lincolnshire Show. The awards were created to recognise the extraordinary work that so many volunteers do throughout Lincolnshire. All winners were treated to a VIP day at the Lincolnshire Show, with a guest, as well as a framed certificate.

Good Citizens Awards

The Citizen of the Year award went to Marion Cotterill from Skegness. Marion has spent half her life volunteering with the Guiding movement in Skegness, benefiting generations of youngsters.

Now in her 70s, Marion has played an integral role running groups and supporting other volunteers, while juggling family responsibilities with five children and eight grandchildren.

She started 37 years ago helping with 5th Skegness Guides, and then moved on to Brownies and Rainbows, who she still volunteers with today.

The Pair/Couple award this year went to Ann Munro and Anna Maltby. The pair provide older people with company and enjoyment in a calendar of regular get-togethers at Sleaford's New Life Church, which sees hundreds of pensioners gather for what have become highlights in the town's calendar.

Winner of the Community Group award went to the Friends of Saxilbly Library. When they first formed in 2011, they operated from a rundown old building open just 16 hours a week.

Now local people benefit from modern facilities at the refurbished St Andrews Community Centre, and opening hours have soared to 70 a week.

And finally we have the Young Citizen award which went to Jordan Havell. Animal-lover Jordan, is well known in his home town of Sutton on Sea for his valuable work to protect marine wildlife.

After finding a stranded porpoise during a regular coastal walk, he was inspired to get involved with promoting a national campaign.

In addition, Jordan takes part in community activities such as maintaining the Stepping Stones Café garden and helping to run a water station for the Mablethorpe Marathon.
