At the 2016 annual Town Meeting held in the Moorside Room, 9 Church Street at 7pm on Monday 25th April two Community Awards were presented, to Graham Jemison and Stuart Webster.
Graham Jemison received the award for his contribution to the youth cricket and football teams.
Graham has been coaching the (now) under 11s Kirkbymoorside football team for two years. Prior to this he was the assistant coach for three years. In the summer months, Graham also coaches the Kirkbymoorside Junior Cricket team so he is coaching young people from the Kirkbymoorside area the whole year round. Graham works full time, therefore his role as coach is all-voluntary and absorbs much of what would be his spare time.
Stuart Webster receives the award for his contribution to the Cubs as Assistant Cub Leader and for his commitment to the community, beyond Cubs.
For several years he was an active member of the play area committee and he volunteers with the tractor run. He always looks out for his neighbours, especially the elderly, and is always ready to give a hand. Stuart is an all-round great guy and is an asset to the community.
He is a committed Cub leader, he has been involved with Kirkbymoorside Cubs for nearly 7 years and is a great asset to the group. His practical skills and down-to-earth, can-do attitude make him invaluable, both to his fellow leaders and to the children, for whom he is a strong role model.
The 2015 Community Award was presented to June Cook for her significant contribution to the community.
June was Kirkbymoorside District Nurse for many years and also midwife until she retired when she took on charity work for Marie Curie Cancer Care. In June 1999 June set up and remains Chair of the Kirkbymoorside & District Fund Raising Group who have raised in excess of £304,798.05 for Marie Curie Cancer Care. June is also involved in many community groups and activities such as her involvement with Messy Church at the Methodist Chapel, the Red Cross, Brownies, Elderberry Club, pre-school play group to name but a few. June’s contribution to the community is certainly noteworthy.
In 2014 two awards were presented. Sarah Woodward was nominated for the way in which she has brought music to the community through many different avenues and on a voluntary basis over a number of years.
Edward Clarke Ted Clarke was nominated for his contribution to the football and cricket club as groundsman at the Sportsfield for almost 15 years.
