Selfless members of the community in Croxley Green got some well-deserved recognition at Croxley Green’s Annual Parish Meeting last month.
Each year Croxley Green Parish Council awards the Hazel Seeley Award to an individual or group in recognition of the work they do for the benefit of the community of Croxley Green.
The award, in the style of a civic award, is named after former parish councillor, Hazel Seeley, whom served continuously on the Croxley Green Parish Council for 18 years.
Hazel was the recipient of the award in its inaugural year in 2016.
Chairman Mark Saxon said he was disappointed that only one nomination had been put forward but emphasised that Susan Hillier, this year’s winner, was an extremely worthy recipient of the award.
Susan wasn’t able to attend the meeting because she was volunteering so her husband Chris collected the award on her behalf.
Susan volunteers for a number of different organisations in and around the village including a medical loan services which includes wheelchairs and works closely with the Red Cross.
said: “She is always there and always answers the phone. She is very helpful. She is also a leading light in the Scout movement. It’s wonderful to see what she puts in and what we all get out of it.”
The council also announced the results of its Christmas Lights competition. David and Caroline Gregory won the award for individual display. Croxley Green Community Centre won the award for communal display.
