SALLY Hollingshead of the North Tupsley Action Group (N-TAG) was the recent recipient of the Mayor's Commendation Award at the Hereford city annual parish council.

She said "What a great honour it is to receive such a prestigious award from the mayor of Hereford city.

"I would like to accept this award not only for myself but on behalf of my fellow committee members who worked tirelessly for our community, Mrs Dulcie Maber, Mrs Agnie Tyler, Mr Brian Kempson, Mrs Margaret Russell, Mrs Daphne Griffiths, Mrs Joan Conway, Mrs Sue Davie and not forgetting the late Mr Angus Robinson.

"Also all our loyal N-TAG members and our residents for their support over the past seven years at all our events, and helping make our little part of Tupsley a much better place.

"I must also thank Hereford City Council, Herefordshire Council, Herefordshire Housing, HVOSS, our councillors, Jesse Norman MP and West Mercia Police for supporting us with funding over the years which enables us to set up a monthly afternoon tea club for the elderly, a much needed youth club, and a twice yearly community coach trip to a designation of our members choice."

N-TAG had a list of changes needed from residents when they started such as a new play area, goal posts and a community facility to name just a few. Over the years they managed to tick everything off the list, the latter thanks to the Rev John Watson.

None of this would have been possible without the support N-TAG received from those mentioned above and other community groups from Herefordshire.
