Over the next two weeks we are showcasing some of the amazing work individuals and businesses have performed throughout the coronavirus pandemic as part of the Recognition of Service Awards.

Today we are looking at the Individuals Within A Team category.

Andrew Mugford

Maldon and Burnham Standard:

Andrew said: "It was I real surprise to receive this as my involvement was very much as one of many frontline workers.

"My main role was being part of the small team preparing and sorting food parcels from the Salvation Army Hall."

His nomination said he went "above and beyond" his duty and kept the building clean and protected.

Lisa Clampin

Maldon and Burnham Standard:

Lisa said she harnessed the "kindness, selflessness and generosity" that existed in her community to pull together 135 volunteers as part of the Neighbourhood Coronavirus Support Network.

She said: "I am not only proud of what we achieved but also feel inspired by those I volunteer alongside and humbled by this nomination as I was just one cog in a beautifully well oiled machine."

Paul Raymond

Maldon and Burnham Standard:

Paul led the team at Ansell and Sons butchers after the shop closed.

His nomination said: "He and the team closed their shop initially to protect staff & customers as it was impossible to socially distance safely within the confines of their small shop.

"They immediately expanded the capacity of their home delivery service to enable them to continue to provide vital food supplies to local residents."

Julia Rome

Maldon and Burnham Standard:

Julia jumped at the chance to help her local community and began collecting food parcels for people in need.

Her nomination said: "Julia was a constant support for the Emergency team throughout the pandemic. She was always available for urgent parcels and made sure that everything asked of her was done quickly and efficiently.

Clare Thompson

Clare runs and owns the village shop in Great Totham which remained open throughout lockdown.

Her nomination said: "Clare and her staff work long hours at the best of times, and now in addition to that they have had to manage the personal risk to their own health – risks which they have however minimised by the way in which customers and transactions are managed.

"Their attitude and behaviour throughout has been friendly and professional.”
