Wanted: your 2014 Crosspool Community Award nominations

The Crosspool Community Award was set up in 2013 by Crosspool Forum to acknowledge commitment, accomplishment and achievement by individuals in the Crosspool neighbourhood.

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.
