The White Swan- Coronavirus Community Champions!

In a year that has challenged us all in countless ways, it is brilliant to see that so many people in our local communities have stepped up and gone the extra mile to help others through this difficult time.

One example of a business that has gone above and beyond for its local community is The White Swan in Ovingham, and this week I was delighted to present owners John and Lyndsey Sharkey and their team of staff with a Coronavirus Community Champion Award.

Throughout the pandemic restrictions, John, Lyndsey and their team have carried on and have earned the gratitude of their local community, delivering hot and delicious meals every week to those who are shielding or vulnerable. Various local residents contacted me to nominate The White Swan for this award and to tell me about the amazing work The White Swan has been doing.  

The good news is that The White Swan is now back open to all, with seating both inside and outside- and an impressive tipi as well! I definitely recommend a visit to support this fantastic local business.

Congratulations to everyone at The White Swan- they truly are Community Champions.
