On Tuesday 10th December, the Local News team attended the annual Community Award Ceremony, recognising the great services performed by members of the community.
For its 3rd year, The Bridgford Hub put on a lovely afternoon service at the Walcote Drive Community Centre in West Bridgford.
The event began with warm greetings from Dr Greg Ramjas, melodic hymns sung by the Jesse Gray School Choir, an address by Councillor Gordon Wheeler, questions and answers with Nottingham Fire Services and an informative talk from Pastor Paul Liburd, before the awards presentation commenced by Councillor Gordon Wheeler.
As an added delight throughout the afternoon, there was an appearance by local musical talents, Tristan and Ty Watts. The brothers performed beautiful songs on violin and piano.
