Charity "Honours' List

Two Cheshire East organisations have won the Queen's Award for Voluntary Service — the MBE for local groups.

One of them is Chelford's own CTARA.

Chelford Tenants and Residents Association has been honoured with the Queen's Award for its work to combat social isolation among older people.

Michael Jehan, who chairs the association, said the award made him feel 'very proud and privileged'.

He added: "It is a testament to the hard working volunteers who have made such a difference to our local people, and to our supporters without whom we would not exist.

"As well as providing a wide range of activities including a community garden project, social events, coach trips and computer classes we also support our mainly older tenants to improve their housing, local communities and lives generally.

"An example of the inspiring work undertaken is our most recent initiative 'Ageing Well in Chelford', which includes a digital discovery project and a new Little Free Library, one of only 15 currently in the UK."
