Officers ‘delighted’ at champion awards

Members of Kilburn Safer Neighbourhood Team are feeling “delighted and humbled” after being nominated for a Community Champions award.

PC Neil Hopwell and PCSO John Midgley are up for an award in the Public Service category for their work to encourage safer, more active and environmentally friendly ways of travelling to school.

Head Teacher at Kilburn Infant and Nursery School, Joanne Baillie, nominated the pair after they visited the school to speak to youngsters about roads safety.

PC Hopwell said: “John and I are delighted and very humbled to be nominated for an award.”
