Derbyshire Excellence in the Community Awards

Buxton Dome 12th October 2010


After a fine buffet provided by The Derbyshire County Council at the Derby University's Devonshire Dome, several members were present ot collect the Derbyshire County Councils "Excellence in the Community Award 2010"


After taking their seats, they sat as two presenters from BBC Radio Derby Andy Potter and Matt Barlow then introduced the host for the evening.


Commencing to read the citations before announcing the winners on stage, the two presenters progressed through the 100 individual, groups and organisation whose winning categories included. Volunteering, Fundraising, Improving Life and Protecting Derbyshire.

After listening to 70 announcements it was my turn to listen to the edited version of the citation submitted by my nominator Ann Drawwater of Calow, this included the hard efforts put in by many members over the years.

The evening was concluded with remarks from the Chief Executive of the DCC, Nick Hodgson, giving thanks for the people who had been involved with the evening procedures.


Further photographs were then taken on stage to conclude another succesful year in the times of The Chesterfield Musketeers Showband
