A Gamlingay man who has helped keep his home area tidy has won a community award.

Tony Goss won the Environment Award at South Cambridgeshire District Council’s Community awards and was among a host of people commended for their efforts.

Mr Goss was nominated by Gamlingay Parish Council.

A council spokeswoman said: “Tony has worked incredibly hard to ensure that Gamlingay’s streets are kept clean – even volunteering to drive the SCDC road sweeper himself when they were short of staff! He has also done voluntary litter picking around the village for many years.

“The South Cambridgeshire Community Awards are the district council’s way of saying a massive thank you to the amazing individuals, groups, and businesses that make South Cambridgeshire one of the best places to live in the country.”

Supported by Hill, the 2016 sixth annual Community Awards held on Thursday, March 10, were bigger and better than ever.
