I would like to thank the Journal and sponsors of the Grantham is Great awards held recently. I was nominated for and won the Best Volunteer category for my work behind the scenes at Barkston and Syston Cricket Club.
Thanks to everyone who voted for me and a big thank you to my partner, Maxine, and my two sons, as without their help I could not put in so much time and effort.
I know there are many people out there who do a great job running clubs, societies and looking after people. Without them these things would not exist and I take my hat off to them. I know how hard a job it can be. These people not only put the great into Grantham, but also into Britain.
So, next time you drop the kids off, spare a few minutes and say thanks to them and see if you can help. I bet you can, there are never enough hands.
West Street, Barkston
