Swaffham Town Council was given an award for putting on a civic reception and allowing welcome signs to be put up at the town’s entrances. Jurgita Stipiniene of the Iceni Partnership received an award for their support in room hire, printing, technical support and a 208km cycle ride that raised money for good causes.

And Reverent Janet Allan, vicar of Swaffham’s St Peter and St Paul Church, got an award for arranging a thanksgiving service, and the town’s Tesco store was honoured for allowing charity events and food collections to take place there.
