The Crosspool Community Award was set up in 2013 by Crosspool Forum to acknowledge commitment, accomplishment and achievement by individuals in the Crosspool neighbourhood.
Retired Lydgate Junior School headteacher Sue Havenhand was the first person to receive the award last year. She was presented with it for her contribution to education in the community. This includes 14 years spent as head of the school, where she was responsible for approximately 1,500 local children passing through. Prior to her time at Lydgate, she was also an outstanding teacher at Hallam School.
Sue was presented with a small memento to mark the occasion at 2013 Crosspool Festival’s Picnic in the Park.
