The dedication of the Crosspool Forum vice chairman Steve Reynolds has been recognised with him being presented with the 2015 Crosspool person of the year award.

The award, set up in 2013 by Crosspool Forum on a suggestion by St Columba’s minister Reverend Frances Eccleston, acknowledges commitment, accomplishment and achievement by individuals in the neighbourhood.

On the recommendation of the Frances, Crosspools first award winner was Sue Havenhand, the retired headteacher of Lydgate Junior School.

In 2014 some 50 residents, at an open meeting, proposed and voted Ian Hague, Crosspool Forum Chairman, as the person to receive the award.

For the 2015 award, voting slips were compiled from a shortlist of people, nominated by the public and published in the Crosspool Clarion. Steve Reynolds, receiving the most votes, was presented with an engraved tankard and certificate at last week’s open meeting.

To avoid disappointment Crosspool residents are advised to purchase the Crosspool Calendar as soon as possible as stocks are rapidly running low and no
further copies will be available.

The calenders are on sale now for £4 in Crosspool Pets and Enhance hairdresser.

Crosspool Forum would like to thank everyone who submitted photographs for the photograph competition for entry within this years calendar.

Special congratulations go to Hilda Hinchcliffe for submitting the winning photograph which can be seen on the front of the publication and shows a white Crosspool as
experienced by the whole community since boxing day.

Money raised will help Crosspool Forum funds for local events and improvements to our neighbourhood.

Crosspool calendar proves to be big success

The final batch of 2015 Crosspool calendars will go on sale this week after the first two print runs sold out.

The initial 100 calendars sold out in a few days, so Crosspool Forum decided to print another 100. The second batch sold out just as quickly and with a waiting list of people wanting calendars the decision was taken to print a final 100.

The first 20 or so of these calenders should be on sale now for £4 in Crosspool Pets and Enhance. The final 80 are scheduled to arrive on Tuesday morning.

The calendar features Crosspool scenes from over the years. Many of the photos in the calendar are taken by local residents, plus there are some archive shots showing familiar locations looking very different in times gone by.

Money raised will help Crosspool Forum funds for local events and improvements to our neighbourhood.
