Pauline Watham is so highly regarded for her tireless community work in Wrington that three villagers nominated her to be the Times’ Community Hero of the month.

But when we told her she would dine for free at DoubleTree by Hilton, Cadbury House in Congresbury, she said: “As far as I am concerned the village is full of community heroes.”

Pauline taught at the local primary school for 21 years and is involved in a whole range of community orientated activities, including the messy church events and a The Edward Bear Club preschool.

Villager Iris Cook was one of the people to nominate her, and said besides visiting elderly people in residential homes, Pauline also takes groups of elderly people to lunch twice a month and organises a minibus and drivers for the occasions.

Praise for Pauline’s tireless work for others also came from Rosemary Lawson,

She said: “Pauline is always thinking of others both young and old and is a hero to so many.”
