Frodsham Community Association wins Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service

FRODSHAM Community Association has received the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service – the highest award a voluntary group can receive in the UK.
The honour comes in the group’s 50th year – a special celebratory weekend is to take place in October.
Chairman Graham Reeves said: “We are delighted that the work of FCA has been recognised and it is a tribute to all the volunteers involved in the planning, building and continued success of The Centre over the past 50 years. It is the dedication and hard work of these volunteers that provides such excellent facilities for the town and a ‘home’ for so many diverse activities”.
Representatives of FCA Anita Boardman and Sue Thomson have already attended a garden party at Buckingham Palace along with other recipients of the award from across the country.
Later in the summer, the association will receive a signed certificate from The Queen and the crystal award from Lord Lieutenant of Cheshire David Briggs.
Frodsham Community Association provides safe, accessible and friendly facilities for community groups at the Community Centre in Fluin Lane.
It is run by a volunteer committee and provides facilities for groups, clubs, stage productions, meeting rooms, family events and other occasions.
The Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service aims to recognise outstanding work by volunteer groups to benefit their local communities. It was created in 2002 to celebrate the Queen’s Golden Jubilee. Winners are announced each year on June 2 – the anniversary of the Queen’s Coronation.
