Celebrating People Award

The High Peak CVS Celebrating People Award, in memory of former HPCVS Chair Chris Woodcook, was once again presented at our AGM this week.  

This year 3 organisations were highly commended – High Peak Foodbank, Furness Vale Community Centre and Social Club and Glossop Arts Project.

The winner was G52, a women’s group based in Gamesley working for the benefit of the community 52 weeks of the year, providing low or no cost activities and opportunities for all to join.

This summer, the group brought the seaside to Gamesley for a family fun day, sand, barbecue, ice cream, music and even donkey rides arrived for all to enjoy!

A particular project 'Bellies Not Bins' regularly collects perfectly good food about to be thrown away by local supermarkets and food outlets. The group distributes this food to the local community and often puts on cookery sessions and demonstrations including ingredients and recipe cards for people to take away with them. 

G52 made the delicious buffet for the High Peak CVS AGM; tasty, impressive and very good value. If anybody is interested in booking the catering service, please call Pat Javenaud on 01457 858035.
