Caroline Flint was guest at this year's Tickhill Awards, hosted by town Mayor John Bergin, but the special guest was Jack Cox, recipient of the Tickhill Young Person of the Year Award.
Jack, who is in year 1 at Tickhill St Mary's C of E Primary School, has already undergone life saving surgeries. Today he still has to take several medicines each day to keep his kidney functioning. Administering his medicines takes up to 15 minutes each day.
Said Caroline: "It was a pleasure to meet Jack to see him receive this award. Despite huge challenges in his life, I'm told that he makes little fuss, gets on with it and has a brave a positive outlook. He is a lovely and worthy winner."
Margaret Cannings-Clough, retiring as Town Clerk after eight years in post, received the Community Award.
Said Caroline: "Margaret has simply been one of the outstanding parish and town council clerks I've met. She has been at the centre of much that is good in Tickhill, she managed the first Neighbourhood Plan completed in Yorkshire; and she has overseen improvements in the town's pavilion and other facilities. Margaret has made a huge contribution to Tickhill."
Margaret Cannings-Clough is replaced by Maxine Booker as Town Council Clerk.
