Police officers win awards at Eastern Division ceremony

POLICE officers from North Wales have had their work recognised at a ceremony.

The Eastern Division awards took place on Tuesday at St David’s Park Hotel in Ewloe.

Among those honoured were Flintshire officers Angela Jones and Gareth Pearson, who were commended by Divisional Commander Ruth Purdie for their bravery, professionalism and first aid skills while dealing with an incident in January.

The pair had attended the home of a man who was unconscious in a car inside his garage. They forced open the blocked garage door and pulled out the car to remove the man before administering first aid and contacting the ambulance service.

The headteacher of Bryn Coch Primary School in Mold, Cledwyn Ashford, was also recognised for “going the extra mile”.

He was nominated by PC Helen Lloyd-Jones for his community involvement and the support he offers to pupils past and present, as well as police officers.

Holywell and District Neighbourhood Watch received the new Working in Partnership award for its work in the community.

The Divisional Commander commended the dedication and personal commitment shown by chairmen Barry Lambert and Dave Badger to the community of Holywell and its district and their contribution to partnership work in the Eastern Division.

As well as offering support to the victims of crime and working with community beat managers, they have used their own money to fund projects such as the graffiti board scheme and CCTV cameras.
