COMMUNITY efforts by groups and individuals have been applauded through a set of awards handed out by North Norfolk District Council.
Unstinting work leading Sheringham's regeneration group by Brian Farrow and Mike Crowe earned them a civic award for promoting community spirit.
Each has had a spell as chairman of SheringhamPlus over the past five years, and their nomination praised their tireless work in drawing together the community to draw up plans which resulted in 11 projects, including the showpiece Oddfellows Hall.
Community Enhancement Awards were given to groups in Wells and Bodham.
Homes For Wells was selected for its efforts in seeking to buy homes for affordable rentals to local people, while the Bodham Playing Field project had refurbished the sports pavilion, and provided new play and exercise equipment for children and adults.
The awards were handed out at the annual meeting of the district council by outgoing chairman Sue Arnold, who also re-presented the recently-awarded Clean Britain national award to the council staff who helped make the district the cleanest in the country.
