The High Sheriff Community Award is given to individuals or organisations that have made an outstanding contribution to their local community in Hampshire. We are delighted to have won. Three cheers for all of our volunteers, members, friends and supporters in Hampshire.
The awards ceremony will take place in the Great Hall, Winchester, Saturday, 1 March. Camilla Oldland, LP CEO, will be accepting the award along with library member and LP trustee Danni Curtis, and volunteer Len Webb.
Rupert Younger visited Living Paintings in December to meet staff, volunteers and library members and to learn more about our service. Pictured below, Rupert Younger with Living Paintings young library member, Jodee.

I look forward to congratulating them formally at the High Sheriff of Hampshire Awards Celebration this Saturday where they will have the chance to meet and share their experiences with other winners from around Hampshire. ”
