Community Champions

Skipton and Grassington guilds received two honours in last nights' Craven Community Champions Awards.  

The first award was Arts and Culture and it was given to "those who had made an outstanding contribution to the arts, heritage and culture in their community or the District in general".  The second was the Civic Achievement Award which "recognises outstanding performance in the community" and was presented for our StArt project which had significantly benefited others during 2014.

The awards were presented at a celebration reception held at The Coniston hotel.  Jill Maloney and Claire Ketteman collected the awards on behalf of the guilds, supported by Enid Pyrah, Sue Ingles, Marjorie Lloyd and Sue Sissling.

What a fantastic achievement for both branches!
