Companies, individuals and community groups have been recognised at the 2014 East Riding Chairman’s Awards.

The Business with Under 50 Employees was named as Drewton’s Farm Shop in South Cave and the Business with Over 50 Employees was named as Agenda Security Services, of Burstwick.

Meanwhile, the Community (individual) award went to Renée Ounsley, of Snaith, for the Pollington Airfield Memorial Garden and The Community (Group) award went to Friends of East Riding Youth Orchestras.

Sylvia Milner won the Environment award for her work at Middleton on the Wolds Primary School.

Jordan Money, of South Cave, was recognised in the Sport (junior volunteer) category and Chloe Hamilton, of Cottingham, won the Sport (talented performer) award.

Coun Mole said: “I have attended numerous engagements across the county that demonstrate how hard and to what good effect people work on behalf of their local communities and a ceremony such as this can only recognise a small percentage of the many achievements around the East Riding.”
