The Old Bath House and Community Centre of Wolverton welcomed very special guests at this week’s pop-up cafe to award and celebrate it’s team of dedicated volunteers.  Mr Alexander Boswell, HM Vice Lord-Lieutenant of Buckinghamshire presented the volunteers with an award and certificate from the Queen. This accolade is the highest award given by the Queen (an equivalent to an MBE for voluntary groups) and it recognises the community centre’s work to “serve the community through activities and initiatives that promote wellbeing and bring people together”.

Staff, volunteers and supporters of The Old Bath House were joined by Mrs Julia Upton, The High Sheriff of Buckinghamshire, Cllr Sam Crookes the Mayor of Milton Keynes, Adrian Moss the Mayor of Wolverton and Milton Keynes Council Leader, Peter Marland. 

‘It’s a great honour to be recognised and we are thankful to all our supporters over the years for everything they have done to keep our community centre in the heart of our town”
Chris Bridgman, Chair of Trustees
