Karen Muller, Team manager for Marlborough House in Hastings, was presented with the award for excellence in partnership working at the Sussex Police Divisional Awards last week. The award, which she shared with members of the Police, Fire Service and Hastings Borough Council, was to recognise all their hard work in evacuating clients from Marlborough House and making sure they all had somewhere to stay on the day of the fire.
East Sussex Divisional Commander Chief Superintendent Neil Honnor said: “For me the divisional awards are the highlight of the policing year. They are a real opportunity to celebrate the outstanding work of officers, staff, volunteers, partners and members of the public in East Sussex Division. They also give us all a chance to reflect on how we all work together for a safer Sussex.”
High Sherriff Graham Peters presented Karen with her award and she thanked her colleagues for their support; “I am really honoured to be receiving this award today and I would like to say a big thank you to all the other staff and volunteers from Family Mosaic. We have been overwhelmed at the amount of help and support offered by such a wide cross section of the local community and it means that we have been able to support our customers during a period of real crisis.”
A big well done to Karen, her team and volunteers for all their tireless work to support the customers from Marlborough House.
