Evelyn has been a central figure in her local community for several
decades. She has played organ at local churches for 70 years. Even through
her own bouts of illness she still visited housebound villagers to bring them
some company and help where she could. She regularly attends choir
practice and was instrumental in getting a CD produced and sold.
“An unsung heroine”
She is involved in the local drama group and entertains children in the local
primary school with tales of her childhood. She is in demand by local

“Evelyn has not to our knowledge received recognition. We thank you for your time and consideration of this lady and whatever the outcome we have enjoyed enthusing with you over this honourable member of our community”.
Evelyn received a plaque in recognition of her long-service to the church
which is proudly displayed at the church where she used to play most.
