A COMMUNITY group has been recognised for the help and support it gave families following the death of schoolgirl Tia Sharp.

New Addington Pathfinders won the prize for outstanding residents' group at the Croydon Stars community awards last month.

The group was praised for providing a much-needed community base on the Fieldway estate at the time of 12-year-old Tia's death in August last year.

The awards recognise council tenants and leaseholders for their hard work and dedication in 2012.

Representatives were presented with certificates by Mayor of Croydon, Councillor Eddy Arram, at a ceremony held at the Clocktower café in Katharine Street.

Winners were nominated in different categories by residents, councillors and officers, with other victors including Eric Webb, from Addiscombe, who won the award for long service to the community, and Kim Wakely, who picked up the resident of the year award for her work representing families on the Monks Hill estate in South Croydon.

Councillor Dudley Mead, deputy leader of Croydon Council, said: "These awards celebrate our fantastic residents for their hard work and dedication."
