Two dedicated Holt residents received awards this week for their hard work improving the local area.

The fourth Holt Honours Awards took place at Holt Town Council’s annual towns meeting on Monday and were given out to Barry Pilgrim and Gordon Burden for their efforts in 2011.

Mayor Bryan Payne said: “No one works harder than Barry to benefit the people of Holt through the committee of the Community Centre.”

Mr Pilgrim has helped to obtain grants to improve the centre, install solar panels on the roof, insulate the walls and bring new ideas to the town.

Mr Payne added: “He has played a leading role in new developments such as forming a bridge tuition afternoon, organising the crib festival and the societies fair, working tirelessly to prepare and organise the distribution of the ‘what’s on’ leaflet and even being the sandwich board man walking the streets of Holt to advertise Community Centre events.”

He was also praised for inspiring others to “put their energies and hearts into improving the Community Centre”.

Mr Burden received the second award and was dubbed a “one man litter picking phenomenon” by the council.

“He has single-handedly removed skip loads of litter over an area covering the town and its outskirts from High Kelling to Letheringsett,” Mr Payne said.

“He can be regularly spotted either on foot or his bicycle wielding his litter picker.

“The result of his efforts is a more pleasant environment for all Holt residents and visitors.”
