UNSUNG heroes in Camden Council were recognised last week at the annual OSCAs award ceremony.

TV personality and radio DJ Richard Blackwood presented the event which recognised the contribution of youth workers, library staff and other workers in the borough.

Chief executive of Camden Council Moira Gibb said: "Our committed and motivated workforce helps make Camden a leading council.

"The OSCAs are an opportunity to recognise some of our successes and congratulate staff on their achievements."

Youth workers Scott Fry and Nakuja Guyan were two such winners, awarded for their work educating young people on the consequences of crime and anti-social behaviour.

The crisis support team won the OSCA for team of the year. They are a group of volunteers who work on bank holidays and evenings to react to difficult and sudden circumstances, and during the recent Camden market fire helped set up a shelter for evacuees and supported residents and traders.

Swiss Cottage library shelving assistant Chris Nichols (pictured above with Richard Blackwood) won the OSCA for employee of the year, commended for his helpful and kind manner.

Other winners were those involved in the celebration of the St Pancras station reopening and caretaking supervisors Jane Seaman and Nick Hayes.
