Grangewood and Claudia Winkleman present Rev Lucy Winkett with Mayfair Times Community Award

The heroes of Mayfair were crowned at the Mayfair Times Community Awards, which were presented at the Dorchester on 24th January.

Passionate about supporting the local of community of Mayfair, Grangewood was proud to sponsor the awards for the second year in a row that recognise the efforts of people and organisations that have made a positive contribution to local life.

Mike Stevens, Grangewood Chief Operating Officer said: “Community is so important. We’re proud to be a part of Mayfair and shaping the heritage buildings and protecting and preserving the fabric and scene setting for the community as it goes about its daily lives.

“It was important to us to be part of the event and support the work and valuable contributions of people within Mayfair who help make it a very special neighbourhood.

“We’d like to congratulate all of the winners for their outstanding efforts.”

Rev Lucy Winkett was awarded the winning title of the ‘putting something back’ category, which Mike Stevens presented on stage alongside Strictly’s very own Claudia Winkleman.  Lucy Winkett has been the rector of St James Church since 2010. She was one of the first generation of women to be ordained in the Church of England.

She also chairs the Amos Trust, a human rights charity that works with street children in South Africa and funds community projects in Palestine, Nicaragua and India.

Highly valued by the local community, she also broadcasts regularly on religion, gender and contemporary culture and is a long-standing contributor to Radio 4’s Thought for the Day.

Over 450 guests attended the star-studded event, alongside the likes of David Gandy, GQ Editor, Fortnum & Mason CEO and the Mayfair Times editorial team, who all played an important role in judging the awards.
