Sara Holley Community Award

Sara Holley Community Award

Tuesday 9th January 2018 Published by Leave your thoughts

In April 2011, our village lost one of its most loveable characters.

Sara Holley, who was well known and respected to many for her love of the community, unexpectedly passed away. Over many years she played a key part in many community projects, including our first Party in the Park festival in 2009. As a Peasedown native, Sara loved our village immensely and always wanted the very best for it, and for those that live here.

Those that had the pleasure of knowing Sara will have many happy memories that they’ll cherish forever. She’s missed by everyone who had the opportunity to meet her, and those who are active in the community can continue to make the village she loved a better place.

To remember Sara, the Party in the Park Management Committee, in conjunction with her family, introduced the new Sara Holley Community Award in 2011. The award is always presented at the annual Party in the Park festival. The recipient is selected by Sara’s family.

Selection Criteria

In order to be nominated as a potential recipient of the award candidates must have:

• Showed a visible display of community activism in Peasedown St John for, at least, the previous 12 months.
• Carried out their public service in a voluntary capacity with no financial gain.
