John Evans Good Citizen Award 2021 – Richard Farley

The Parish Council  announced the award during our virtual meetings, but wanted to wait until the Chairman could make the presentation in person to a Richard and to thank him  for his contribution to our Brundall community. The John Evans Good Citizen Award was presented at the full Council Meeting on Monday 23rd August.

Richard has undertaken a number of leading roles in the village and has clearly demonstrated over many years his commitment to our committee in Brundall and is a very worthy recipient of the Good Citizen Award.

He has undertaken the role of Chairman of Brundall Allotment Association and has been a leading light in ensuring the successful development of the parish allotments since inception. He is Brundall’s local Tree Warden, as part of the Broadland Tree Warden network, and is truly valued in the support he continues to provide in that role . His expertise, knowledge and enthusiasm for the role is clearly evident with a clear focus on the environment and protection of village life for future generations.

Richard has also been a Trustee and Secretary of Brundall  Memorial Hall as well as a volunteer driver for Church transport and works closely with the Parish Council in relation to the Recreation and Well-being and Planning Committees.

He is a more than worthy recipient of the John Evans Good Citizen Award and the Council thanks and congratulates him for all the time and effort he has put in to supporting community life and for everything he continues to do for Brundall.
