Champions honoured by Chairman

Last week, the stars of South Norfolk were invited to a special Community Champions reception, held by Council Chairman Florence Ellis.

Fourteen awards were handed out to individuals who have gone above and beyond to improve the lives of local residents at the event which was held at the Corn Hall in Diss.

Councillor Florence Ellis said: “We wanted to say thank you to these remarkable people who have shown unbelievable kindness and compassion when it has mattered the most. The service they have provided to residents and continue to provide has made a huge difference to the lives of local people and we wanted to recognise and applaud that.”

Certificates were handed to: Park Radio, Robin Stamp, Lorraine Burrell, Liz Brown, Heather Jackson, Cathy Harvey, Pauline Shadbolt, Samantha England, Lizzy Pegg, Michael Harroven, Matt Scade, Ann Gibbins, Jill Casson and Hilary Springett.

Park Radio, the local radio station covering Diss, Eye and Harleston, received their award for the vital role they have played and continue to play across the community, notably during the pandemic.

Park Radio’s Station Manager Chris Moyse said: “It is wonderful that all the hard work of the team has been recognised - I will personally cherish this achievement for a very long time. It’s a real endorsement of what Park Radio is all about as we now embark on the next phase of the journey having just received Ofcom's approval to extend our licence for a further 5 years to 2027."
