New Year Honours List

Dear All,

 I am very pleased to announce that Vanessa Jones, Chairman of Bredhurst Parish Council has been recognised in the New Year Honours List, by being awarded a British Empire Medal, in recognition of her Service to Woodland Management and the Community in Kent.

I am sure that we would all  like to congratulate Vanessa for this recognition of her hard work for BWAG and the Parish Council.

She has worked tirelessly in promoting BWAG since its inception, and continues her work to make BWAG  the outstanding and award winning organisation it is today.

In her role as Chairman of the Parish Council, she ensures that our Village is well maintained for its residents and visitors alike.

Vanessa, a valued volunteer, has worked tirelessly since becoming a co founder of BWAG in 2005 and, since 2003, in her role as a Bredhurst Parish Councillor.

I know that Vanessa would like to share the acceptance of this Award with all those who have worked with her, both in BWAG and the Parish Council.

These Awards are extremely rare and it shows that she is recognised for all the voluntary work she has devoted to the area.

Congratulation – it is well deserved.


Malcolm Greer,

Maidstone Borough Council.
