Moulton’s Citizen of the Year Margaret Horn has been honoured again and received a Good Citizens Award at the Lincolnshire Show on Wednesday.

Margaret (84) won the individual award for unsung heroes of the local communities and was presented with it by county council chairman Martin Trollope-Bellew.

Margaret retired to Moulton from Suffolk in 1993 and quickly threw herself into village life.

Nominating her, parish council chairman Jim Scarsbrook said: “Margaret has been working tirelessly for the community for many years – and without expecting the praise or recognition she most certainly deserves.”

As one of the longest-serving members of the Moulton Community Association, she has been at the forefront of raising funds for the maintenance of the local community centre and village hall.

Margaret also plays an integral part at All Saints Church, as verger, relief organ player, choir leader, gardener and member of the Pastoral Care Team offering support to those in need.

Her efforts are felt throughout her village, and she is branch leader of the Moulton Mothers Union and an active member of both the Whaplode WI and Moulton All Saints Guild. She is also treasurer of weekly social club Moulton Pop-in and leads a monthly community singalong session at the Moulton Abbeygate Rest Home.
