IN a glittering ceremony at the International Convention Centre in Telford for the Excellence in the Community Awards 2012, Mayswood Garage and its proprietor, Nigel Woodward-Sheath JP, were presented with a Business Support Award by Sir Graham Meldrum, the chairman of West Midlands Ambulance Service (WMAS).
The Wootton Wawen-based garage sponsors and maintains a car for the Henley-in-Arden Community First Responder team - a group of volunteers who respond to 999 calls in the locality. They nominated Nigel for his generous support.
John Pudney, chairman and scheme co-ordinator of the Henley Community First Responders, said: “We all owe Nigel a huge debt of gratitude. His continuing support has enabled us to keep our ambulance car up to WMAS specification with full livery and equipment. It is an essential part of our operations and we are indeed fortunate to have such a generous sponsor. The whole team would like to congratulate Nigel on his well deserved award.”
