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.
Caroline Flint was guest of honour to light up Tickhill for Christmas as the MP joined town councillors and local children at the Tickhill Buttercross to perform the count down to the big switch on.
Caroline then joined recently retired Town Clerk Margaret Cannings Clough on a tour of local businesses to judge the best shop window.
Caroline Flint joined Mayor Ros Jones and Civic Mayor George Derx and guests to celebrate a retrospective exhibition of paintings prints and drawings by Tickhill artist Janet Buckle, held at the Doncaster Museum and Art Gallery.
Said Caroline “I am so pleased I was able to join the launch of this major exhibition, by a longstanding local artist. I first came across Janet’s work when I saw her paintings of coalmining landscapes.
“Janet observed that coal mines and their slag heaps are not just grey and lifeless, but that they were constantly changing. I love her everyday views. Her work reveals her surroundings from the view from the back door to walking through lush woodland.”
Caroline Flint and Rosie Winterton met Tickhill resident Vicki Dawson who leads a charity to help families improve their sleep.
Supported by the MPs, the Children’s Sleep Charity launched their ‘Sleep Manifesto' in Westminster, as part of Sleep Week in partnership with Netmums. The manifesto outlines the shocking impact that sleep deprivation is having on families’ emotional, physical and mental wellbeing.
