Cobham Conservation and Heritage Trust

Meet the Guardian of the Tilt Conservation Area

Chairman's Award for Voluntary Service to Adrian WitherleyMary Lewis presenting the SCC Chairman's Award for Voluntary Service to Adrian WitherleyLocal hero Adrian Witherley spends his Sunday mornings keeping the Tilt Conservation Area clear of rubbish. Having been born and educated in Cobham, he is proud of his community and wants to keep it in pristine condition. Adrian's efforts did not go unnoticed by David Tipping of Cobham Conservation & Heritage Trust, who lives on the Tilt.

When Surrey County Council Chairman, Mrs Sally Marks, recently recognised some of Surrey's unsung heroes, Adrian was surprised to find his name on the list. The Chairman's Award for Voluntary Service, comprising a medal and certificate, was presented to Adrian by Cobham's County Councillor Mary Lewis on behalf of the Council Chairman.

Speaking about her Surrey County Council Chairman's Awards, Mrs Marks said, "It is fantastic to thank these amazing unsung volunteers and celebrate the work they do for communities."
"It's a privilege and an honour to see that sense of community first hand when I travel across the county in my role as Chairman, and I am constantly moved by the selfless dedication of these wonderful people."

Mary Lewis added, "Thanks to the work of Adrian Witherley, Cobham Conservation & Heritage Trust and Elmbridge Borough Council, the Tilt Conservation Area is in safe hands. I was pleased to be able to nominate Adrian for an award, as he works quietly in the background but makes life better for everyone who visits the Tilt and the nearby riverbank."
