Two individuals have been awarded for their outstanding contribution to the community. The Service to the Community Awards were given to Rob Holden and Zoe Glover for their work over the past 12 months.
Nominations for the award were made by Councillor Tony Hodgins. Rob won his award in the senior section for his work in helping the area to recover after the floods, including setting up the Calder Valley Floods page on Facebook, and Zoe won her junior section award for her involvement with various community groups.
Cllr Hodgins praised Rob for his work in setting up the Facebook group, which allowed individuals and groups to easily coordinate the flood recovery effort, and uniting the various organisations involved in improving flood defence infrastructure.
Cllr Hodgins said Zoe was a remarkable young lady who was involved with Calder High’s school council, Mytholmroyd Gala, and is a participant in local amateur dramatics.
