Solihull community hero wins eco award

Solihull Editorial 8th May, 2023   0

A SOLIHULL eco activist has won an award for her work cleaning up the community.

Platform Housing Group, whose vision is to build a better future by investing in affordable homes, services and communities first launched their Community Heroes recognition Awards in 2022, to highlight the incredible work that their customers and partners do in their local communities.

Pauline Goldingay from Castle Bromwich has been named a community hero for litter picking in the fields around her home.

She said: “I’ve been litter picking for many years and even at 88 years old I still get out there.

“When I open my curtains in the morning I want to look out at a nice clean and tidy view and that’s why I do it.

“I can’t get over the fact that I have won!”

Marion Duffy, chief operations officer at Platform Housing Group said: “I was honoured to have been a judge on Platform’s Community Heroes Awards panel, along with our Board member Lou Zonato and Customer Engagement Panel member Shaolan Menzies.

“It was such a pleasure to read through all the amazing entries and extremely difficult to choose the winners.

“In what continues to be a challenging time for so many of us, it’s lovely to say thank you to our customers and partners who go above and beyond to serve their local community.”
