A community award scheme has been launched in St Neots in memory of Sue Jarrett who passed away unexpectedly in September last year.

Sue was a well-known figure in the town and made a huge contribution to the community, particularly in Eaton Socon where she was involved with several groups and charities. 

The St Neots Initiative has launched the Sue Jarrett Award for Services to the Community, which will become an annual event.

The chairman of the St Neots Initiative, Gordon Round, said: “I am delighted that the St Neots Initiative is sponsoring such an award in memory of Sue. 

"Her loss is, and will continue to be, felt by all who knew her. The promotion and tourism group, of which Sue was vice-chairman, feel very passionately regarding this award and what it stands for.

"We now welcome the opportunity to recognise those unsung people who donate their time freely and without question.”

The St Neots Initiative is made up of representatives who volunteer their time to promote St Neots. The group consist of people from the private and public sector as well as those who represent St Neots Town Council, Huntingdonshire District Council and the Cambridge and Peterborough Combined Authority.
