Members of Top Bellefield in Manchester were honoured by the community's Youth Club, for promoting agriculture, education and general kindness, at a special awards function, held on recently at the New Testament Church of God in the area.
Those honored were Amy Tracey, Muriel Gordon, Lamice Simpson, the Bramwell family, Incilda Williamson, Jeffery Pomells, Clarence Simpson, and Jacqueline Osbourne.
President of the Youth Club, Ainsworth Watt told the gathering that one of their objectives is to work together as a group to achieve social cohesion.
Pastor of the Top Bellefield New Testament Church of God, Karl Grant had words of encouragement for those in attendance at the function. He spoke of the potential in the community and spoke of his dedication to assist in any way possible with the continuous building of the community.
Mayor of Mandeville, Councillor Brenda Ramsey said the awardees were deserving of the recognition. She stated that they have indeed given their best to inspire the citizenry to achieve and realise their potential.
"They are of humble means, they are not rich, but what they give is more that what many who have the means, have given", she said.
