Community Action Awards 2019

Community Action Awards 2019.

You will be pleased to know that the Friends of Shanklin Theatre, after submitting their 2019 Community Action Awards application, had been shortlisted in the ‘Arts and Heritage category’.

On the 14th May, we presented all the good work carried out by our volunteers over the last year to the CAA Judges.

Subsequently, three Friends of the Theatre – Phil Kelly for his work on defibrillator training equipment procurement – Membership Secretary Jacqui Robertson and FOST Chairman Janet Wardle attended the awards ceremony at the Riverside Centre, Newport on the 24th May.

We can confirm that the Friends of the Theatre picked up 2nd prize in the Arts & Heritage category. We also received a cheque for £150. Congratulations to Aspire Ryde celebrating as the overall winners of the evening.

Many thanks to FOST Chairman Janet Wardle, Jacqui Robertson and Phil Kelly for attending and representing Shanklin Theatre on the night.
