It is with great pleasure, that Helen Tague has accepted the annual award of “Citizen of the year”, from Fordingbridge Rotary.

Helen was given the award in recognition of the years that she has been involved on many local activities, all of them on a voluntary basis.

Helen’s involvement has been varied and includes St Mary’s Church, the Fordingbridge Museum, the Business Forum, the Flower Club, Inner Wheel and Fordingbridge Twinning Association.

Helen was the Town Clerk for years, and as such, was a founder member of Fordingbridge Twinning.

She became Chairman for a while, and has been active in the twinning Association ever since. She is still on the Twinning Committee.

It is highly opportune that she will be joining some of the Rotary members on their proposed visit to Vimoutiers next July when the 40th anniversary of Fordingbridge being twinned with Vimoutiers, will be celebrated. (In France, only an hour’s drive from Caen)

Helen is nominated for all her hard work in the community, thus becoming a highly respected member of the community, well known and recognised.

As with previous Citizens of the year, Fordingbridge Rotary will be adding her name to the board of honour, kept in Fordingbridge Town Hall.
