Atworth Parish Council were delighted to give awards in grateful recognition for outstanding service to the community of Atworth Parish. One was given to former PCSO Maggie Ledbury and the other to fellow Parish Councillor Richard Clark.
Maggie Ledbury had been the PCSO for Atworth Parish for thirteen years. She had worked effectively and efficiently in her role, and has established the confidence and trust of the community. She had used her excellent interpersonal skills of being calm and tactful, to build friendships especially with older people, and had become a valuable asset to our village life. She has used her knowledge, advice, good judgement, and sound common sense to benefit lives here significantly. Maggie has been an exceptional representative of Wiltshire Police. Her work was very much valued and appreciated, and she is greatly missed.
Maggie continues to serve the wider community in her new role with SpeedWatch.
Richard Clark is well known and respected in Melksham as he has been a volunteer Link driver for over ten years. In Atworth he is valued for his work with the Atworth Village Hall and Recreation Ground Charity. Richard has been Chairman of Trustees for the past eight years. Under his dedicated leadership and personal input, the Village Hall has been sympathetically modernised, renovated and repurposed providing an excellent facility at the heart of the community. His helpful, friendly, and always positive outlook make him a popular personality in the village. He keeps busy as Village Hall Manager, Booking Clerk, and maintains the Recreation Ground.
