An 84-year-old great-grandmother who has written and co-produced pantomimes for more than 20 years has been named Moulton Parish Community Citizen of the Year 2012.
Megan Hughes was presented with a shield and framed photograph of All Saints Church, Moulton, by parish council chairman Andrew Woolf during a meeting at the village’s community centre on Tuesday.
Mrs Hughes, who with husband Arnold has five children, 13 grandchildren and a great-grandchild, was nominated by the Friends of Moulton Mill and cast members from this year’s pantomime Gloriana, based on the life of Queen Elizabeth I.
“It isn’t me who deserves this award but all the wonderful people around me who helped put on such a wonderful performance,” Mrs Hughes said.
Other nominees for the award were Margaret Hains, leader of Moulton Seas End Youth Club for the past 10 years, Moulton Seas End Village Hall chairman Tracey Stockings and Moulton Community Centre committee member Len King.
Councillor Woolf said: “This is the sixth year that we’ve run the award which is for a person who likes to go that extra mile in trying to help the community.
“All the nominees this year would have been worthy recipients of the award but unfortunately, there can only be one winner.”
