Five local people were nominated by residents for their special and unique contributions in helping other residents, local groups and generally making Necton a good place to live.

Bernard Bell for his tireless work and fundraising efforts for the old village hall committee,
Derek & Kim Woodbine for their many years’ energetic commitment to Necton Sports & Social Club,
Jill Luongo for her life-long volunteer involvement in all things Necton,
Jenny & Tony Smedley for their massive efforts for NSAG (Necton Substation Action Group),

All of these people have given their time, energy and enthusiasm for the benefit and enjoyment of others and the Parish Council is delighted to recognise their contribution to life in Necton.
