Well Done

Congratulations to Kath Bills who was presented with a well deserved Civic Award “in acknowledgment of dedicated and excellent service to Ludlow”. The presentation was made by the incoming Mayor, John Aitken, at the Mayor Making Ceremony held in the Assembly Rooms on Wednesday May 26th 2010. The award was in recognition of her work with the Social Enterprise Scheme which is based in Ludlow and covers South Shropshire. Kath has run the Tea Room as a volunteer, opening on Monday and Friday each week at the rear of the Renaissance Centre which is part of the South Shropshire Furniture Scheme. Well done Kath.


Congratulations to Maisie Wall (aged 9) on her outstanding success in a Judo Competition held at Ludlow Leisure Centre on Sunday 16th May. She won all her fights and received a trophy and a medal. She started Judo six months ago. Keep up the good work. Don?t mess with Maisie boys!!
