Two stalwarts of the community have been presented with a Spirit of Falmouth award for their work with the Boscawen Fields Action Group.

Tony Hallam and Lynn Newsham were presented with their award by the Mayor of Falmouth Steve Eva earlier this month as recognition for their hard work with volunteers at Boscawen Fields Action Group.

The mayor, Councillor Steve Eva, presented the 2019/20 Spirit of Falmouth Award for their work with Boscawen Fields Action Group where they co-ordinate the volunteers who meet every month to maintain Boscawen Fields.

Tony and Lynn said “We'd like to say a most heartfelt thanks to Councillor Tony Parker for nominating us for the very special Spirit of Falmouth Award and to the Mayor Steve Eva & his wife Victoria for their attendance to make the presentation.

"It is very rewarding to see that our efforts and that of the other members of the group are appreciated by the members of Falmouth Town Council. This area is one of the most iconic in Falmouth & the group's ethos in managing this natural area for all to enjoy motivates us all to get out no matter what the weather and look after our treasured green open spaces.”
