One of the awards was presented to the three managers of Chapel Town Junior FC Under-12s, Mark Longden, James Howe and Kelvin Yeomans, at the football club’s presentation on Friday.

Chris Padden, who nominated them, said: “They truly are a selfless bunch and the under-12s team think the world of them and look up to them. They deserve great credit and recognition.”

Bob Mulholland was presented with his award at the Jubilee Concert in the Memorial Park that he helped organise.

Ken Hope, who nominated him, said: “I cannot think of anyone who more deserves recognition for his community spirit.”

Over the years, Bob has been involved with numerous organisations including Chapel Band, Chapel Male Voice Choir and Kinder Children’s Choir.
