Louise Dembny was presented with the British Empire Medal for her fantastic service to the community, including to Girlguiding in her local area. The award was presented by Dame Janet Trotter, the Lord Lieutenant of Gloucestershire, during the morning service at Christ Church, Nailworth, where Louise is an active member of the congregation.
As Dame Janet read the citation, she made us aware of the huge number of community and international areas that Louise has been involved in including being a supporter at the Christ Church, 30 years of being a Leader for Girlguiding, fundraising for several charities both at home and abroad.She spoke of her work at the Job Centre where Louise has helped to transform the lives of numerous clients with health issues or disabilities to get into or back into work.
Louise showed how she is always thinking of others when she read her own piece to the congregation and the first thing she did was to acknowledge and thank everyone who has helped her along the way to being awarded the BEM.
Congratulation Louise. We think it was definitely well deserved.
