Margaret Elsey from Lincoln Green has won a community safety award for her work in the community.

Margaret works hard to make sure all residents in the area are safe, visiting all new tenants, working with the police and running the Neighbourhood Watch as well as the local tenants and residents association.

Her award was from the Bushbury, Oxley and Fordhouses Community Action Network (BOFCAN) which covers a very large area and makes it a major award for any winner.

Neighbourhood wardens Laura Wallace and David Commins nominated her for the award. Laura said:

Margaret is a wonderful all-rounder, not only does she run the Neighbourhood Watch and work with the police, she also arranges events and trips for everyone on the estate. Everyone comes to Margaret, she’s an asset to the estate.

Margaret said:

I couldn’t believe that I’d been nominated and I was overwhelmed to have won.
