Witney Gazette: High Sheriff award winners 'an inspiration for us all' (Witney Gazette - 27 Feb 2014)

THEY go the extra mile to make a difference to the lives of others.

And the efforts of 17 workers and volunteers have been recognised in Oxfordshire’s High Sheriff awards.

Nominations were made by teams and individuals and cover all aspects of life, from promoting community integration to working with the homeless, promoting diversity and supporting communities.

The county’s High Sheriff Graham Upton will present them with the awards at a special ceremony at County Hall on Tuesday.

Prof Upton said: “These are all people who have had a high impact on the lives of others over a sustained period of time and have been recognised by other people as inspirational and as setting an example for others to follow.”

Cllr Tom Smith

MINSTER Lovell Parish Councillor Tom Smith is known for helping people with practical tasks such as fixing gates and painting fences.

The 89-year-old has served on the parish council for more than 40 years and said: “I would like to say I am retired but intend to keep going as long as my health will let me.”

The Parish Council feel that Mr Smith’s helpfulness in the community where nothing is too much trouble for him and people are not afraid to ask him for help over many years, is worthy of recognition through the High Sheriff’s award for helpfulness in the neighbourhood.

Repatriation of fallen
service personnel


A group of parishioners have organised repatriation assemblies at the south end of the village at the junction of the Brize Norton road and the A40 slip road.

Car parking is available at the Minster Lovell Scout Group car park.
