Weyhill Electronic Organ Society was nominated for The Queen's Award for Voluntary Service 2017 – an award that was created by The Queen in 2002 to mark the occasion of her Golden Jubilee, recognising excellence in voluntary activities carried out by groups in the community.
Unfortunately, given the large number of nominations and the very high standards throughout, the Club was not among those selected to receive the Award, but the message received was very complimentary and encouraging:
“The nomination of Weyhill Electronic Organ Society for The Queen's Award for Voluntary Service 2017 represents a tremendous achievement for your organisation. Everyone involved, and particularly your volunteers, should feel immensely proud of the recognition that a nomination for this Award represents. The work your group does for the community was very much admired by the Independent Assessment Committee. On behalf of The Queen's Award for Voluntary Service Team, please convey to your volunteers and other staff our warm appreciation of the excellent work they do and of the enormous benefit it represents to the local community. The Queen's Award for Voluntary Service Team are pleased to recognise the value of your work and the significance of your nomination for this Award”.
Having just completed its fifteenth year, the Club hopes to continue providing enjoyable concerts and extends a warm welcome to anyone who enjoys easy listening, value-for-money musical entertainment. For information please phone 01264 323213 or visit the Club’s comprehensive website.
