The Chair’s Award for Service to the Community 2023 (Sedgemoor) won by local resident

At the recent Chair’s Awards Ceremony, held on 6th October 2023 at the Taunton Rugby Football Club, local resident Valerie Morley was recognised for her wonderful community spirit. The Chair of Somerset Council, Mike Best, handed The Chair’s Award for Service to the Community (Sedgemoor) to Val for her tireless work with Friends of Apex.

Nominated by Councillor Roger Keen and voted for by the Members of Burnham-on- Sea and Highbridge Town Council, Val’s citation read:

“Val Morley has had a long-standing relationship with Friends of Apex, a founding member of the park and actively involved in all aspects of its care and development. Almost on a daily basis you will find Val there with her secateurs ensuring that no path has become overgrown, noting where plants are not thriving and finding possible relocation spots for them, picking up litter and generally being involved in the planting and maintenance of the park itself.

Her commitment to the maintenance and care of the park has undoubtedly played a key part in the regular Green Flag awards that Apex Park receives – Val is a truly committed volunteer.”
