I was very pleased and honoured to be nominated by fireman and Councillor Ben Swaine for the Taunton Deane Citizen of the Year Award.

The award night was a lovely evening which I attended with my son, Benjamin.

As nominee I was presented with a certificate in recognition of my work in starting the Think Amy campaign. I, and all the other nominees, were also given a commemorative Diamond Jubilee mug.

I am grateful to Ben for nominating me for this and for the continuing support he, and the rest of Taunton fire crew, have given to me, my family and the Think Amy campaign.

Together with myself, and some of the Year 10 students who attended Bishop Fox’s School with Amy, Taunton fire crew will again be promoting road safety awareness on Blackbrook Way on Friday 18th May.
