Former Mayor Jeanette Lowe has received a British Citizen Award in recognition for her devotion to her community.
Jeanette was one of 29 medalists honoured at a prestigious ceremony, hosted by TV presenter Michael Underwood at the Palace of Westminster.
She was recognised for her active roles with Adlington In Bloom; Adlington Town Council; Friends of Adlington Library and her fund-raising for the local MS Society when she was Mayor.
Jeanette has taken on the role of Mayor of Adlington four times and was also instrumental in overseeing the construction of the Fairview Community Centre.
She has served the Lancashire best Kept Village Competition for many years, first as a judge, then as secretary for ten years & currently as treasurer.
She is relentless in persuading everyone to take pride in the area and there is not a good cause locally that hasn’t benefitted from her input.
Jeanette said: “I am honoured to have been nominated for this award and accept it on behalf of all the other people in the village who , very hard to make Adlington a better place to live, work and play.”
British Citizen Award Patron, Dame Mary Perkins said: “Each medal recipient has demonstrated a commitment to others that makes them the unsung heroes of our country and they thoroughly deserve to have a light shone on their selfless endeavours”.
The awards are sponsored by Specsavers, Places for People and Cisco.
