Littlehampton Town Council Merit Awards: Community spirit abounds after two years without the accolades

People who go out of their way to help others were recognised at the Town Council Merit Awards.

People who contribute to the town were acknowledged for their outstanding contributions to the vibrancy of Littlehampton, the awards were extensive this year, having not been awarded for two years due to the pandemic.

Speaking at the ceremony last month, outgoing town mayor Michelle Molloy said: “The community spirit in Littlehampton continues to astound, achieving so much for the benefit of everyone.”
