Kent Association of Local Councils has a number of awards it gives out every year to members of the Kent Community to promote community participation and recognise the efforts of its residents.
One of their Community Awards this year has been given to Swanley resident Mrs Christine Hudson and was presented to her at the Annual Town Meeting by the Mayor Cllr Laurence Ball.
Cllr Ball said ‘I cannot think of a more deserving person in the town and I am very pleased to be making this presentation’.
The award recognised the work Mrs Hudson does for Churches Together, Food Bank, Fifty Plus Club, Rural Age Concern and others and held her as an example of volunteering for her community.
Mrs Hudson had received a similar award in 2017 from Sevenoaks District Council and has recently joined the steering group for Swanley’s Neighbourhood Plan Group.
More details on the award and volunteering options can be found on Swanley Town Councils website www.swanleytowncouncil.gov.uk or on their facebook page.
