Mary Caryer, recently retired Chair of the Arden Theatre Group, was recognised for her work to the arts in Faversham at this year’s Annual Town Meeting. Mary was among three finalists whose voluntary work for the town was acknowledged. The other nominees were Steve Sherlock, Chair of the Faversham Christmas Lights and Janet Stickles, former manager of the Pilgrims Hospice shop in West Street.
The Mayor of Faversham, Cllr Shiel Campbell, presented Mary with a certificate signed by the KALC Chair and the High Sheriff of Kent, together with a voucher for a cream tea for two, kindly donated by Belmont House and Gardens, near Throwley (www.belmont-house.org).
It was the first time that the Annual Town Meeting was supported by the many groups and charities, who had either received grants or worked in partnership with the Town Council during the past year.
Deputy Mayor of Faversham, Cllr Trevor Abram, said “It was the best attendance at a Faversham Town meeting since I was first elected six years ago. Well done residents for such a positive interest in what is done on your behalf.“
