Claire and Dave Elliott (2021)
Newnham Parish Council were delighted to present the 2021 KALC Community Award to Dave and Claire Elliott, licensees of The George Inn Newnham, in recognition of all they have done for the community in the past year. At the start of the pandemic they opened a shop which enabled villagers to obtain basic necessities and offered takeaways, providing a delivery service for those unable to leave their home.
Sue and Jeff Kirby - 2019
We finally caught up with Sue and Jeff at this year’s Newnham Fete, what an elusive pair they are! The KALC Community Award was presented for their voluntary work in the community, not least for Newnham Village Hall. They also set up the monthly social gatherings and are always willing to offer their help for anything.
