Gold Star Awards for Martock

At a glittering ceremony at the Octagon Theatre in Yeovil on 29 October, Martock was presented with 2013 Gold Star awards in two of seven categories.

The Gold Star awards are sponsored jointly by the Western Gazette and South Somerset District Council to recognise the amazing feats of young people in the area and to champion adults who work with young people in a voluntary capacity.

Our winners were:

  • Tina Boyce, who received the prestigious lifetime achievement award for her vital contribution to Martock's Youth Centre over 20 years as both caretaker and voluntary leader of the junior youth club; and
  • Martock Youth Parish Council, who received the charity hero award for all the work they have done in supporting fundraising events in Martock over the past year.

Congratulations to you both!
