A Grantham woman has been rewarded for her valuable voluntary work in the community.
Janet Cox, of Manners Street, a former South Kesteven District Council Scheme manager, won a High Sheriff Award. She was presented with an engraved lapel pin and a certificate by the High Sheriff of Lincolnshire, Toby Dennis.
A spokesman said Janet has always been on hand to help elderly residents whenever they needed support, whether during working hours or in her own time and, having retired in 2004, Janet continues to devote herself to the community, organising social events and fundraising tirelessly.
All the award winners attended a reception held in their honour at the Judges’ Lodgings in Lincoln’s Castle Square. Coun Ray Wootten, chairman of Lincolnshire County Council and a Grantham district councillor, said: “I am very pleased that Janet’s contribution to the voluntary sector has been recognised at these prestigious awards.”
