A tenant who has worked hard to keep her fellow residents entertained has been highly commended as a Community Champion.

Jennifer Guy, 76, who lives at Anchor’s Godwin Court in Haws Lane, Brackley with her husband Don, was nominated for a Happy Living Award.

The awards recognise those who live in Anchor’s housing who have gone the extra mile for their community.

Mrs Guy was nominated by neighbour Stella Taplin and said: “I am over the moon to have been nominated by Stella. It is important to have a good community spirit.

“Don and I both like to help the community organising trips and activities for Godwin Court and the local community to get involved in.”

Mrs Taplin, 84, said: “Jenny makes so much difference to everyone at Godwin Court – she is a real community champion, always organising something for us all to get involved in.

“Jenny and her husband give up their time so freely organising fun things for us to do. In the summer we had a mad hatter’s tea party and a barbecue all within a few weeks. Jenny and Don went to great lengths to make the events enjoyable and successful.

“Jenny is so generous, always going out of her way to put a smile on people’s faces, and I feel she deserves special recognition for her kindness.”
