Your Champions 2012: Mold councillor Andrea Mearns nominated for award

A MOLD councillor who goes above and beyond the call of duty has been nominated as Flintshire’s Champion Person 2012.

Andrea Mearns was put forward for the Trinity Mirror/ScottishPower award by Katja Jewell from Mynydd Isa, who says it is ‘high time to celebrate her’.

Cllr Mearns was instrumental in starting up a Mold branch of Cittaslow, which aims to make the town a better place to live, work and visit.

Katja said: “Our family moved to Mold in 2002 and has seen the town change.

“Mold is a lovely small market town, but thanks to Andrea’s vision to make the impossible possible and her tireless enthusiasm and creativity, it is now a buzzing place with several festivals spreading over the year.

“Andrea has a wonderful personality and draws in people from all over the community, young and old, makers and shakers, and empowers them to shape their own community by using their gift, and by networking with others.

“All this is topped by her incredible skills to organise and manage an army of volunteers and an impeccable sense for detail.

“I feel it is high time to celebrate her!”
