This week, the Mayor gave out 2 Mayor's Awards to the following people: 

Adam Berry, a local, very talented and very proud Stainforth artist, whose work is shown in national galleries.

Peter Tinker, a local barber, who has been in the same premises for over 50 years. There isn't another person in Stainforth who has heard as many holiday stories as him!


Cllr. David Marshall, along with members of the Town Council, worked extremely hard within the community during his mayoral year. A number of donations were given out to local groups/organisations as well as the local schools, churches and charities. 
Here are just a few of the donations that were made: 

Dave raised a whopping £2000.00 for Firefly. Dave chose Firefly as his charity to fundraise for throughout his mayoral year. Donations were given by many different people and businesses both locally and further afield and a huge thanks is sent to everyone who has contributed.
For the Queen's Platinum Jubilee Stainforth Town Council donated funds towards a number of street parties/events and also to Long Toft Primary and Kirton Lane School.
£100.00 was donated to Stainforth Methodist Chapel to help them with their Wednesday Coffee Mornings. The Methodist Chapel does a fantastic job of providing a warm space and a friendly face for people to visit. A further £140.00 was donated for their Christmas Breakfast with Stainforth Smile.  
£100.00 was donated to Stainforth Smile.
