It’s a case of pure drama for Bourne Academy teacher Ted Fisk who lifted the Contribution in the Community Award, sponsored by Riverside Training.

Mr Fisk was recognised for his passionate and tireless work to promote drama, music and the performing arts right across Bourne and the Deepings.

Judges chose Mr Fisk, head of drama at Bourne Academy, ahead of Pam Mellor of Peele Community College, Long Sutton, and charity fundraisers at Sir John Gleed School, Spalding.

Mr Fisk said: “I think it’s vital to get the message of arts into Bourne because it’s really important to the people of Bourne and it brings to it more of a community.

“Art is a very spiritual thing that brings people together and it’s something to celebrate, so I’m absolutely proud to receive this award because I’ve seen the good that it can do, not only in Bourne but other areas too.

“We’re proud to be an outreach project for other areas of the community, not just Bourne but into the Spalding area and the Deepings as well.”
