People making a difference in Barnet honoured at Civic Awards ceremony

Our very dear Executive Committee Member and founder Peter Cragg was recognised for many years of community work across multiple organisations, including Victim Support, Friern Barnet Voluntary Care for the Elderly and Age Concern Barnet.

The Mayor of Barnet commended the hard work and dedication of some of the borough’s citizens during a special ceremony at Hendon Town Hall.

They were given Civic Awards across a range of categories during the event on Wednesday (April 3) after being nominated by the public for the good work that they have done.

The Mayor of Barnet, Cllr Reuben Thompstone, said: “These awards celebrate the contribution that these wonderful people have made to their community.

“It is enriching to live in a borough that contains such selfless and motivated citizens, who work endlessly to make Barnet a better place for others.”
