2019 Jo Cook and Alison Minson
Jo Cook and Alison Minson have been awarded the Claire Tarrant award for 2019.
Those who nominated them felt it would be difficult to separate them and that they are both equally deserving. Both of them have a good handling style.
They are totally committed to Burford Tower and have been for many years, rarely missing a practice or service. They are always willing to ring at other services within the Benefice and further afield. They are also committed members of Shipton-under-Wychwood tower, hardly missing a practice or ringing for services.
They are amongst the most regular attendees at Branch practices, meetings and AGMs. They support fundraising events within the Branch and do anything they can to help.
