Parish Champion Awards 2021
The Parish Champion awards. This is an annual award given by the Parish Council to people at the heart of our community who have gone above and beyond to help others. A few snapshots of our recipients receiving their awards are shown below. It was unfortunate we could not present the prizes at our usual ceremony, but at least the sun was shining when we had separate socially distanced meetings outside the Parish Office at Downend Library!
John Honeywell – John, a Downend resident, is retiring as race director of the Frenchay 10K Charity Road Race. 2020 would have been the 40th anniversary of the event.
Nick Smith, Downend School – Nick has worked at Downend School since 1996 and has worked with the Downend Community History & Arts Project, Downend Men in Sheds, Downend & Bromley Heath in Bloom to name but a few.
Prestige Grounds – We are so very proud of Brad and his team who have provided incredible support in getting the sports pitches and playing fields at King George V, Badminton Road and Bromley Heath to an excellent standard. Brad's attention to detail, professionalism and understanding of what we require has been outstanding.
Tracey Lush – Tracey is a Lollipop Lady working with the staff and children at Bromley Heath Schools, in addition to being a lunchtime supervisor and supporting the breakfast / tea clubs. Tracey fulfils such an important role within our community.
