Golden role models

Every year the Alan Golden youth awards, named after a past Bridgnorth Lions member who also served as a Bridgnorth headteacher, are given to those who have done outstanding work in the community.

A special awards presentation was held at the Shakespeare pub and this year’s joint winners were Holly Tyrls and Ben Twigg. Holly, head girl at Bridgnorth Endowed School, was described as a “fantastic role model” for other students and a “great ambassador” for the school. Ben was nominated for his “amazing, never give up” attitude and his support for others, despite suffering a major health issue.

The competition was judged by Shropshire councillor Les Winwood, who praised all the finalists for their efforts, especially their willingness to help others. The winners received a special shield and a cheque while the others received certificates.
