Last night Newry, Mourne and Down District Council held the Chairperson’s Annual Recognition Awards LIVE on Facebook – not the conventional way but was held virtually due to social distancing rules.
This year the ceremony was presented by both the Chairperson of Council, Councillor Charlie Casey and the immensely popular Mentalist David Meade. The awards are designed to honour individuals and organisations who in their own unique way have been wonderful ambassadors for Newry, Mourne and Down. This year, there were six different award categories – Community/Voluntary, Sports, Arts, Human Endeavor, Fundraising and Lifetime Achievement.
County Down Rural Community Network’s very own Paula Nixon, Community Health Worker in the Newcastle area, received a Chairperson’s Award for her work in the community. Congratulations Paula!
And congratulations to all those who were nominated and received awards for outstanding service to their communities and people around them – including many of our volunteers and members of community groups from all across the District.
