The Chairman’s Community Awards are organised by Somerset County Council. They highlight the work of the county’s unsung local heroes.

Catharine Goldsmith served on the Nunney Community Association, Nunney Parish Council and the village hall committee during the 18 years she lived in Nunney. She also actively supported the Nunney Players and other community activities.

Last month she moved to America to marry Gail Taylor, a retired rodeo driver from New Mexico. The wedding took place on Friday 18 October.

The awards ceremony was held at Taunton Rugby Club. David Fothergill, Chairman of Somerset County Council, congratulated a total of 41 recipients before presenting them with a certificate and commemorative gift.

Catharine’s award was collected on her behalf by Ken Lloyd and Jeremy Gaunt, Chairman and Deputy Chairman of Nunney Parish Council respectively.

Before her departure, Catharine Goldsmith was given a unique book about Nunney by the Nunney Community Association.
