Community Awards

Rodington Parish Council runs its own Community Champion Awards scheme which was launched in 2020 to recognises those who act so selflessly for the benefit of the community and help make our community a better place to live.

Past people and organisations to receive awards...


Gemma Jeavons

Thanks to her selfless acts of kindness and continued efforts to keep the streets of our parish clean without ever asking for thanks, Gemma Jeavons of Rodington Heath was awarded the 2022 Community Champion Award.



Ann Richards

For so many years Ann has given so much to her community, without ever asking for thanks. She has been part of the village hall committee, she has organised and helped with fundraising events locally, 1-2-1 supported the elderly in our community and all together given whatever time she has available to improve the lives of so many. We are blessed to have someone like Ann as a part of our wonderful community.

Gordon Edgerton and Stephen Elliot

Gordan and Steve have been brightening up the mood of Rodington for a number of years with their festive lights in December. Together they have used their own homes to display a Christmas lights display like never before seen in our village. Their efforts, which are completely funded from their own pockets, have warmed so many hearts in the community over the years and helped create a closer community feeling. We are all so grateful to these two kind gentlemen.



Rodington Village Hall Charity

For their efforts in keeping the village hall an accessible and enjoyable facility for all these years. Those past and present who have volunteered their time to support the community's needs have done a sterling job in doing so.

It is with great pleasure that the Parish Council recognises the efforts of this wonderful charity.

Claire Broderick

Claire works tirelessly year round (and has done year in, year out) to the benefit of the community of Longdon on Tern. She organises and runs the Annual Fete, the Harvest Supper, and the Christkindle Market, coordinating and inspiring a team of local volunteers. These events raise money for the Village Hall and St Bartholomew’s Church, with a proportion of funds also being donated to a nominated charity of the year.  Claire also actively promotes the other activities which take place in the Village Hall – from Pilates to a Singing Group, and makes sure new residents are welcomed providing them with information about ‘what’s on in Longdon’.

During the Covid-19 lockdown, through her established local contacts Claire coordinated the collection and distribution of prescriptions to those in the community who were shielding due to age or health condition vulnerabilities.

There is no obvious centre to the village of Longdon on Tern, it being rather spread out along the B5063, but Claire’s activities (supported always by her family), have given it a heart, and brought together people both from within the village and beyond, who otherwise would never have made a connection.  Without her efforts, so much would just not have happened.
