Volunteers praised in Stoke-on-Trent

1st August, 2016

The Lord Mayor of Stoke-on-Trent, Anthony Munday, visited Camoys Court when the scheme in Cobridge congratulated three people who have been involved in the monthly Songs of Praise services for 25 years.

Members of the church were also present when he presented plaques from the City to volunteers Olwyn Douglas, who started the services, organist Peter Shore and resident Margaret Hammersley who has rarely missed a service over the years. The plaques were to recognise their outstanding achievement.

Activity Co-ordinator Angela Pugh presented the three with small wooden crosses made from olive trees from Bethlehem.

Angela says the three were very pleased to receive the gifts.

The Lord Mayor and Lady Mayoress were greeted by resident Jean Mountford  who was celebrating her 95th birthday the week they arrived. Jean has lived at Camoys Court since it opened 25 years ago.
