Special Civic Award for Bob Berry
Chippenham Area Board and Chippenham Town Council have jointly awarded Bob Berry with a Special Award for exceptional service to the community. Bob is the organiser of Chippenham Folk Festival and he said: “It was a lovely day, and a very humbling experience. “My wife Gill was also given a huge bouquet of flowers as she does so much for the folk festival. It means a lot to have received some recognition for the festival – not just for me, but for everyone who gives their time. It’s really appreciated in particular to have this joint award.” Mr Berry’s award was presented by the Chairman of Chippenham Area Board Desna Allen, as part of Civic Sunday.
