The Friends of Weston Shore are delighted and honoured to have been awarded the Southampton City Care for the Environment Award at the St. George’s Day Community Awards held at Southampton City College on Sunday 23rd April 2017.
A number of wonderful and very worthy individuals and community organisations had been nominated. We were thrilled to have been nominated, let alone to win an award!
The awards were presented by the Mayor of Southampton, Cathie McEwing, and none other than Southampton legend, Lawrie McMenemy.
Special thanks to those that nominated us and for the honour of the award itself, which is deeply appreciated. We love Weston Shore, we love Southampton and we are looking forward to more fun helping looking after our beautiful beach!
