THE QUEEN’S AWARD FOR VOLUNTARY SERVICE
FRIENDS OF RIVERSIDE of Riverside Community Centre, Malmesbury, Wiltshire are delighted to have been awarded THE QUEEN’S AWARD FOR VOLUNTARY SERVICE (the highest award a voluntary group can receive in the UK), in recognition of our work for our community.
We feel it is a tribute to those people who use Riverside and get involved, either as a volunteers, hirers or participants. Thank You! You all make our lives so much richer.
A special thank you as well to Wiltshire Council, who lease our building, which they refurbished for us through their Campus Project (Malmesbury Area Board led by Cllr, John Thomson). Thank you also to Mr. Ollie Phipps, our former Wiltshire Community Engagement Manager, who organised the refurbishment and set up.
There will be an award presentation in Malmesbury in the summer – We are so excited!
Lastly, just to say congratulations to the other volunteer groups who also won a 2019 award too. We are sure you are as thrilled as we are!
