AWARD WINNERS: Members of Love’s Farm Community Association have picked up a hat-trick of awards.

The three awards were presented to members at a Bedfordshire Pilgrims Housing Association (BPHA) Volunteers thank you event in recognition of the hard work the community association committee has put in to establishing a community at the new estate in St Neots.

Carl Jones, association chairman, was recognised for all his hard work on the estate, alongside Phillip Gibbs, vice chairman, for his continuous work on the Loves Farm newsletter and work with the planning for the community centre.

The association was also recognised, as a group, for the events and fundraising it organises, and support it offers old and new residents. Helen Searle, association secretary collected the award on behalf of the association.

She said: "It's nice to be recognised for the hard work of all the volunteers of committee who are trying to bring the community together and make Loves Farm the place to live in St Neots for BPHA residents and private home owners."

The trio were presented with the awards by John Cross, chief executive of BPHA.
