TWO VILLAGE PERSONALITIES HONOURED
WITH INVITATIONS TO THE QUEENS GARDEN PARTY

It is a pleasure to state that in St Osyth , two of our residents have been invited to attend one of the 2010 Royal Garden Party’s.
Each will be attending as a representative nominated by bodies outside the village, where they perform other duties, but it is a sign of the work they willingly do for the community at large, that they also do important jobs within our village. No more chat – down to business!



First: Miss Jan King, M.B.E. was invited to attend Her Majesty’s Garden Party on 22nd June.
Jan is well known around the village for the various groups she works with. She is on the Village Hall Committee as secretary and she raises funds with table top sales for the Scout group where she is their Chairman, but she is much better known outside the village for her work with the Royal Naval Association.
Her invitation did in fact come via the Royal Naval Association from Commodore McClurge as recognition for her work with that Association.
Jan King, who was born in the village served as a regular in the Women’s’ Royal Naval Service, beginning during the last war, eventually retiring as a Chief Petty Officer in the Regulation branch of the service.

Jan has been the Secretary of the Clacton-on-Sea Branch of the R.N.A. for many years and organises outside trips to other branches and places of naval interest such as Nelson’s Birthplace in Burnham Thorpe in Norfolk, where he was born the son of the local Church rector.

Jan represents Clacton as a representative from the branch on the Area Committee and then on the National Committee of the R.N.A. and actually hears that it was the R.N.A. that forwarded her name whilst she was attending a conference in Normandy.
Secondly: Mr George Gibbs who attended the Palace on 22nd July.

He was recommended by the volunteer organisation AGE CONCERN to receive recognition for his service to the community in this area.



George joined Age Concern Clacton in 1999 and for the last ten years has been its Chairman.

His work and the work he inspires from his colleagues resulted in Clacton Age Concern receiving the Gold Award as the best voluntary organisation in Tendring in 2009.
This award is a top notch award and a reward for the exceptional work done by Age Concern.

George was accompanied by his wife June and said beforehand that he intended to make his visit to London an event for June to say ‘thank you’ for putting up with all his absences on Age Concern business, by staying together in a London hotel for the weekend and doing some sightseeing.

George is also a valued member of the Parish Council where he deals for the Parish with our ‘Older Persons’ and ‘Transport’ issues, which means if problems come to the Council in these areas of their business, then George deals with them!
