The outgoing mayor of Whittlesey has led tributes to supporters who have gone above and beyond during her tenure and amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Cllr Julie Windle and Deborah Slator, co-ordinator at the Helping Whittlesey group, thanked businesses and individuals for their efforts with framed certificates, donated by the Peterborough & Fenland Referee Development Scheme.
Cllr Windle, who was replaced by Cllr David Mason after completing her two-year term in charge, was pleased to see residents coming together to help one another.
She said: “In these extraordinary times, we have seen an exceptional surge of good will and support and many local citizens who could really struggle have been helped in the best possible way.”
The Helping Whittlesey group also received a framed certificate from Cllr Windle on behalf of Whittlesey Town Council for the volunteers who continue to help, such as delivering meals and running errands for people struggling to leave home.
