West Oxford awarded Certificate of Honour

Congratulations to the residents of West Oxford who have been awarded a Certificate of Honour for their effort and achievements in reducing the community’s carbon emissions to combat climate change over the last eight years.

The certificate was presented by Lord Lieutenant of Oxfordshire, Tim Stevenson, during a special ceremony on Monday 9 May 2016 at Oxford Town Hall.

It was one of ten Certificates awarded by the Lord Lieutenant of Oxfordshire and the Lord Mayor of Oxford, Councillor Rae Humberstone, as part of a special ceremony recognising ten volunteers for their dedication and exceptional service to others in a local community in Oxford.

The nominations were considered by a panel of independent judges, the Lord Mayor of Oxford Councillor, Rae Humberstone and Lord Lieutenant of Oxfordshire, Tim Stevenson.  We believe this is the first time that a Certificate has been awarded to an entire community and is a marvellous testament to the pioneering work of West Oxford, which has involved so many people in the community.
