2016 Ambassadors were presented with their Ambassador Awards during the Civic Service on Sunday 24th April @ St John's Church Upper Hopton by Mayor Cllr Vivien Lees-Hamilton.
The recipients are:
Richard Hartley - For Help in Boxing Day floods and Community Group My Mirfield
Clare Moorhouse - For the Mirfield Christmas Appeal
Jenny Tomlinson Walsh - For her achievements as Chair of Friends of Mirfield Library, securing the service in Mirfield
Leah Silvester - For all her outstanding achievements as a member of the 868 Mirfield Squadron Air Cadets
The Ambassador scheme was set up in 2010 by then Mayor Cllr David Pinder for those who have made a significant contribution to civic life in the town or who have through achievement brought recognition and credit to Mirfield.
