Shropshire, Brim Full of Pride

The County's Unsung Heroes Honoured


Shropshire was celebrating last night as the winners of the Shropshire Star’s Pride Awards were finally announced.

The Pride Awards celebrate courage, hard work and generosity amongst the unsung heroes of our rural community. Individuals and families were nominated by friends, teachers, family members and grateful members of the public.

The event, supported by Lightsource Productions and held at Shrewsbury Town Football club, is now in its 7th year. Organiser, Trish Penney, was delighted with the evening saying ‘There was a lovely atmosphere in the room and great to see so many of our sponsors and guests enjoy their evening’.

Amongst the awards winners were caring Frodesley resident Carmen Cullis, the recipient of the Good Neighbour award, sponsored by Shropshire Housing Group. Also honored was reservist Ben Taylor, who received the Local Hero award for his courageous actions in Afghanistan.

The big winner of the night was Carys Jones who was awarded the Youth Community Award (sponsored by Total Response) and then went on to win the overall Pride of Shropshire Award .

The A-level student from Llanfyllin High School, was inspired to act following the tragic death of April Jones. She developed Invizzilead – an alarm which uses radio waves to notify parents when their child goes beyond a pre-defined distance. And this year she scooped a national engineering award for her design. School governor Peter Lewis has said Carys is one the Llanfyllin’s budding engineers of the future.

Lightsource Productions were incredibly proud to provide the technical staging for such a prestigious and important event. Keep up the good work, people of Shropshire, and we’ll see you next year!
