Awards for Isle of Wight Volunteers

By Richard Wright

Four top volunteering awards were announced this week for members of Isle of Wight organisations.

Historic Ryde Society, Friends of Brading Roman Villa and Green Towns Shanklin each won the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service.

There was also good news for Pam Ash, the woman behind Cafe Scientifique, which meets in Shanklin and explores the latest ideas in science and technology.

During Volunteers’ Week it was announced that Mrs Ash — who founded the group with her husband John — from the British Science Association’s Hampshire and Isle of Wight branch, won the Sir Walter Bodmer Award.
