Recently Penkridge Parish Council announced its 2009 Civic Award winners. The awards were made at a Civic Reception at Haling Dene and were presented by Cllrs. Anne Geoghegan and Petula Hughes, Chair and Vice Chair of the Council.

This year the awards were presented to:

Keith Burton - known to many elderly people in the village because of his Co-ordinators role for the local Voluntary Car Scheme and also for his sterling fund-raising efforts for Macmillan Nurses and for his work for St. Michael's church.

This year there were two Junior Awards made:
To Clare Blanchard - for her work as a Young Leader for Penkridge Guides. She is presently studying for her Duke of Edinburgh Award.
The second award was to Mark Gater for tutoring young children to swim at Penkridge Leisure Centre and his involvement as a member of Wolgarston School's Learning Council.

Heartiest Congratulations to all three of them. Penkridge is proud of you.
