Not only is Shirley a board member but she also chairs the Eccleshill Village Steering Group and organises community big events such as the Eccleshill Village Fair and the Christmas Light Switch on in the village every year. Both of these events take a huge amount of time with the planning and organising of the events. Shirley brings other volunteers together and makes these events happen for the community in Eccleshill. Shirley gives up her own time to give back to the community she serves and is so passionate about everything she does. She is very hard working, committed and always has a smile on her face. She is just fabulous!
