Amy Child - Certificate of Merit

Loughborough Echo - 25th April 1986

The hard work of a Quorn lady for Arthritis Care has now been officially recognised. Mrs Amy Child has been presented with a certificate from the organisation by one of its directors, Mr Philip Gibson. Mrs Child has been associated with Arthritis Care for 12 years, 11 of them spent as secretary of the Loughborough and district branch. The presentation was made at the recent annual meeting. Mrs Child knew that Mr Gibson would be coming to the meeting, but the award came as a complete surprise.

Arthritis Care meets on the first Wednesday of each month in Quorn Church Rooms (7.30pm to 9.30pm). Its object is to give arthritis sufferers a chance to get away from their own 'four walls' for some entertainment. Recent meetings have featured a display of dancing by children, singing, and a talk and 'demonstration' by the Town Crier of Leicester. Refreshments are available and there are two sales tables, one for stationery and one for sweets. On average, some 30 people attend. Mrs Child is one of Quorn's most 'well-established' residents, having lived in the same house on Loughborough Road for 70 years.
