Lockdown Hero Awards
The well-deserved 4LEGS Radio Lockdown Heros received their awards from High Sheriff of Berkshire in the 4LEGS studio last Friday 29 October. Listen here (from 1 hour 10 minutes). The winners were:
– Julie Blogg for her work with the Lambourn Junction, family event organising and free haircuts for key workers at Market Hair;
– postman David Reilly for being a friendly and vital point of contact in Eastbury;
– Deana & Danny Carpenter for delivering prescriptions to residents of East Garston;
– Laura Field for setting up a support group and telephone number in Great Shefford.
“The four recipients were fantastic examples of what is best in our County and they have all made a huge difference to the local community,” said High Sheriff Willie Hartley Russell. “I was delighted to learn that they will all be continuing with their voluntary work post the covid pandemic.”
The High Sheriff then went on to Lambourn to meet Andrew Abbott and Jane McCarthy from Lambourn Volunteer Drivers who provide vital transport for local residents to medical appointments, Brian Watson from Racing Welfare who provide financial and counselling support for anyone in the racing industry and Julie Blogg at the Lambourn Junction unit in the carpark behind Goodie’s Cafe. The High Sheriff was impressed by them all providing a wonderful and much needed service to Lambourn. Listen here to Willie and Penny’s interviews with all the groups (from 23 minutes).

Can you believe we celebrate our third birthday on 16 April? It’s been a challenging year with lockdown restrictions but producer Chris Capel has done a great job in successfully keeping the station going coordinating between presenters who had to re-record their shows remotely.
