No, I haven’t been doing anything weird with biscuits, I’ve simply been mixing with some Council Bigwigs at an awards ceremony at the local Town Hall. It turns out, the voluntary litter-picking project which I write blogs about had been nominated for a Community Neighbourhood Award in the ‘Action Against ASB‘ Category, and I was invited to join them. It was a very posh and proper affair, with real champers and expensive nibbles, not to mention the fact that a selection of local dignitaries were on hand-shaking duty.
We were presented with a framed certificate for being nominated, so that was lovely. Professional photos were being taken constantly throughout the evening, so we’ll have to see if we can get our hands on some of those for our blog. After spending time ‘networking’ with all the other groups who’d been up for various awards, we all sat down to watch a couple of presentation videos before the actual awards were handed out.
Although the project didn’t win in the end, we met a few old friends, made some new friends, and a jolly good time was had by all. I think I may have consumed a tad too much free bubbly cos I can’t actually remember much after the speeches. Oh well, it would’ve been rude to refuse – hic!
