Cossall Parish Council would like to thank everyone who nominated residents for the Good Neighbour award and of course, we wish to acknowledge and thank all those who go the extra mile (or more), to help their neighbours.
The recipients of the gift token selected by our MP Darren Henry are Sue and John Hill who continually show caring and kindness in the community by setting up and running the Amigos Group which helps to prevent loneliness for older residents. This is a group that meet on a regular basis and Sue and John held events in their own garden in the summer last year, when it was not suitable to meet indoors.
When selecting Sue and John, Darren Henry said –
“Sue and John Hill are truly deserving of being the top of the Good Neighbour nominees! Lockdown has worsened Loneliness in our society, something that as a Member of Parliament I have seen first-hand. So, I am delighted to have constituents tackling this head on and I am sure that companionship from the Amigos Group has added to the quality of life of older residents in Cossall. I would also like to congratulate all others who were nominated and who have all been outstanding neighbours during a period when neighbourliness has been more vital than ever. “
