LDG Award 2021 - Nominations Closed
The Nominations for the 2021 awards to be announced at the town's 2021 Annual Assembly are now closed.
The Leslie D Gale Award was instituted in 1994, as a tribute to the late Mr Gale, who was the last Chairman of Dursley Parish Council and the first Mayor of Dursley, and who served the community in so many ways. The Leslie D Gale Award not only recognises longevity of service to the community but also impact.
Dursley Town Council is very aware that young people also contribute to the community, and that their work should be recognised. Nominations do not have to be for individuals; in past years groups have also been successfully nominated.
The 2021 recipients will be announced at the Annual Assembly on 27th April 2021 and will receive their award at the Summer Festival on 10th July 2021.
The recipients of the 2020 awards were announced in July 2020 but unfortunately they could not be presented at the town's Annual Assembly which had to be cancelled due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
The recipients of this year's Leslie D Gale awards are Caroline Marrow, Marisa Dexter and Aaron Harris.
Caroline Marrow runs the shop 'Inches' and is involved in many local activities and fundraising initiatives. "Caroline is such a wonderful, caring person and is always thinking of others before herself".
Marisa Dexter was one of the founding members of MOBS (Mothers offering breastfeeding support) Dursley almost 12 years ago. "Marisa is the lynch pin and driving force behind the group and over the years will have helped hundreds of families, many who come during times of crisis".
Aaron Harris has worked for Dursley Fire Service for 19 years and has contributed much to the community including his work with Champions Court. "Aaron is an individual who will go the extra mile to help anyone in whichever way is appropriate, he needs to be recognised for his continued and valued contribution to Dursley".
