Sheila Lomas is presented with the 2017 Crosspool Person of the Year award

A local resident who has spent decades helping out in our local community has been rewarded with this year’s Crosspool Person of the Year award.

Sheila Lomas is well known for her voluntary work at Tapton Congregational Church where she has been involved with hosting garden parties, Christmas events and summer fetes and other fundraisers.

Her selfless work in the local community has been truly remarkable and she is a worthy recipient for this award.

In 1997 Sheila started the Soup and a Roll lunch club with 6 guests. Still running today, it has grown to nearly 40 diners, meeting monthly for lunch, a natter and an afternoon of entertainment.

Crosspool Forum had arranged for the Lord Mayor Councillor Anne Murphy to make the presentation at the Open Meeting on Thursday, but due to a last minute reschedule the Lord Mayor was unable to attend and has therefore kindly agreed to officially present Sheila with the award a little later in the year.
