Parish Council Making a Difference Awards 2014
Deeping St James Parish Council held their annual Parish Meeting in the Conference Room at The Deepings School on Tuesday 20 May.
The highlight of the evening was the ‘Making a Difference Awards 2014’. The Awards, which were presented by Lincolnshire Police Inspector Mike Burnett, are the opportunity for the Parish to say thank you to people who contribute to the life of our community.
Deepings School pupils Aaron Garside, Esther Alderson and Head Girl Phoebe Lucas were all nominated in the ‘Young Person to Most Make a Difference’ category alongside Deeping St James Community Primary School Head Girl Zoe Hutton, who will join our Year 7 this September.
The overall winner was former pupil Emily Morgan who was recognised for her work at The Priory Church, Deepings Youth Centre and Red Cross Shop.
Headteacher Chris Beckett received a special award for outstanding and dedicated service to the community, as he nears retirement this summer. Mr Beckett also gave a presentation to the meeting about the School and its current priorities and achievements.
Of the Young Person awards, Inspector Burnett said: “They are making really good contributions to the local community. Many of them are members of the Deepings School which shows the school in a very positive light.”
