Inaugural Charlbury Honoured Citizen Award for Ken and Margaret Taylor
On behalf of the Town Council, I am delighted to announce that the inaugural Charlbury Honoured Citizen Award will be presented jointly to Ken & Margaret Taylor at 11:30am on Saturday 26th January 2019 in the Memorial Hall.
Ken & Margaret masterminded the Evergreens for over 25 years arranging holidays, local events and fundraising. They were also stalwarts of the Street Fair team for many years as well as organising other events to raise money for the Corner House and Memorial Hall and working with the Charlbury Branch of the Royal British Legion. Over the years they have dedicated an immense amount of time and effort to the community and they epitomise the spirit and commitment to the town that has made Charlbury the lively and supportive place that it is today. Congratulations Ken & Margaret.
Last year, the council announced the introduction of this new award to be given as a tribute to an individual who has given dedicated voluntary service, probably over many years, and as a consequence has made a significant positive difference to the Community and to the lives of residents. We are sure that this award will be the first of many over the coming years. Thank you to all who submitted nominations.
Alongside the presentation of this award, the event on the 26th will be a celebration of volunteering in Charlbury. The success and vibrancy of the community depends so much on the efforts of many volunteers and in recognition of this I would like to extend a welcome to all Charlbury volunteers, past and present, to join us for this celebration on Saturday morning in the Memorial Hall. If you are able to come along, please do make sure that you are in the hall by 11:15 at the very latest, thank you.
