Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service

The Multi Cultural Community Centre (MCCC) has been nominated for the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service. The Queen's Award for Voluntary Service is the highest award given to local volunteer groups across the UK to recognise outstanding work done in their own communities. It was created in 2002 to celebrate the anniversary of The Queen's coronation. It is the MBE for volunteer groups.
A reception was hosted at Hertfordshire County Council in Hertford on Tuesday 9 April for the 5 nominated organisations from Hertfordshire. The MCCC Trustees were warmly welcomed by the Vice-Chairman of Hertfordshire County Council, William Wyatt-Lowe , the Lord-Lieutenant Robert Voss CBE and several Deputy Lieutenants. The five nominated organisations were briefly introduced and invited to take a photo with the Lord-Lieutenant and Deputy Lieutenant. The rest of the afternoon was spent networking enjoying delicious scones with clotted cream and strawberry and a cup of tea.

Showcase event for the Upcycling Project 

The ladies who participated in the Upcycling Fabric Project gathered around Mrs Mavis Tyrwhitt, Freeman of the Borough of Watford on 16th December at the MCCC to celebrate the successful completion of the project. The participants had a great time and were very grateful for the opportunity that was given to them to come together and learn how to upcycle fabric into new useful items. They enjoyed each other's company and made new friends. The Centre would like to thank the Watford Borough Council for their Small Grant which made it possible for this project to take place.

Welcome to Monty!!

The MCCC was selected to give a new home to Monty, the penguin. The offer of adoption came from John Lewis, department stores. Following their well loved Christmas Advert: ‘Monty’s Christmas’ John Lewis wanted to create greater awareness and protection of the Adelaide penguins at the South Pole. Monty is here to stay and everyone to enjoy!


Launch of the Oral History Booklet 

On April 26 the Oral History Booklet was launched at the MCCC as a conclusion to the Reminiscence Project. Watford Dignitaries were present: Elected Mayor Dorothy Thornhill; Norman and Mavis Tyrwhitt, Freemen of the Borough of Watford; a representative of the police and a few councillors. After the welcoming remarks from Sharifa Chaudry, the Mayor congratulated the ladies for their contributions to this valuable project. Free copies of the booklet were given to all the ladies who had participated in the project as well as to those who were in attendance. We concluded the afternoon with refreshments and socializing. An article was published in the Watford Observer on Friday May 2, 2014.
