Themed lockdown walks along Keepers earn Angela a Community Award

The brains behind a series of fun themed walks which kept young and old amused during lockdown has been honoured with a Community Award.

Angela Hedley was the instigator of popular Easter and Halloween walks at Keepers in Golborne over the past year, and the award was in recognition of what she’d done to create some real community spirit.

The award was presented to Angela by local councillors Yvonne Klieve, Gena Merrett and Susan Gambles.

Cllr Klieve said: “It was fantastic to be able to present Angela with our Community Award for being at the heart of the community all this last year and more.

“Angela has given so much of her time for our community. During lockdown she put on free events for families – all socially distanced and operating within COVID guidelines. She put on a Halloween event where children could dress up and do a Halloween spooky walk, a Christmas event with activities for the children, an Easter egg hunt with rewards and raffle.  Each child received an Easter egg. All proceeds from these events went to charity.”

Angela’s efforts are all the more impressive given that she has young children of her own, and a full time job to manage too!

Cllr Klieve added: “We wanted to recognise the selfless person she is, giving so much of her time to our community.”

Huge congratulations on your well deserved award, Angela!
