City Awards for Trib-land residents

Two worthy recipients have received Civic Awards from Peterborough City Council Chief Executive Gillian Beasley in February, for their unstinting efforts over the years to improve the quality of life for village residents.

Glinton’s Ken Doughty and John Cant from Maxey both received awards in the Community Involvement category at a packed awards evening at the Town Hall, where many other similarly deserving members of the public were also honoured. The awards are a new concept for the council and are decided by the council’s Honours Panel, chaired by long-standing Northborough ward councillor Peter Hiller.
When contacted by the Tribune Peter explained “Our panel is independent and has a cross-party make up. At our regular meetings we discuss and evaluate nominations put forward to us for civic and national honours, but it occurred to me last year that we should have a way of recognising the amazing community work done by many residents of our great City. The new Civic Awards we created have done just that and have proved amazingly popular with some ward councillors as a way of saying thank you to their residents for the work they do for others”. He continued “both John and Ken are very worthy recipients this year and the panel had no trouble in unanimously deciding to make their awards. They both contribute a huge amount to their respective communities and are very well regarded by those who know what they contribute”
Glinton Cllr and Deputy Leader of PCC John Holdich was also keen to thank the panel for accepting his nomination of Ken Doughty’s award. John said “Ken has contributed more than most to Glinton. Over 50 years as Scout leader and AMVC governor for over 30 years, not to mention his unstinting work with Glinton’s community association make him a very worthy recipient of this special award. I’m proud to know him”
