Congratulations Gillian Payne – Somerset Activity and Sports Partnership Shining Light 2014
Nominated by Somerset Activity and Sports Partnership, Gillian Payne is being passed on the baton by 2013 Shining Light Jonathan Smith.
Gillian has organised a great Community Games each year at Wimbleball Lake near Dulverton. She is also the founder of South West Fishing For Life, a charity which supports people with breast cancer to access the wonderful lake setting to try out fly fishing.
Commenting on her involvement with Community Games, Gillian said “Community games is a wonderful new event which I became involved in 3 years ago. Living where I do in a remote area of Exmoor by a beautiful lake called Wimbleball, it is very important to get people of the local community young and old together, with lots of them participating and parents and grandparents cheering on the children and joining in the fun and laughter which is what the afternoon is about - getting people together.”
