Senior Siren Editor Wins Regional Plaudits
Mike Wedlock has been at the helm of the award-winning Senior Siren magazine since the charity launched the senior safety and lifestyle magazine back in 2010. Since that time, Mike has steered the publication through many significant changes, resulting in it becoming the highly polished article, that is read by as many as 250,000 people, around the country (and overseas) every edition.
The publication has grown from a relatively modest, quarterly, crime prevention pamphlet to the bi-monthly, quality magazine that is loved by so many in the present. The Senior Siren was announced as winner of the Public Service Communications Award in 2011, and has gone on to win many awards in subsequent years.
For his work as editor-in-chief of the Senior Siren and his other contributions to the success of the Senior Citizen Liaison Team, Mike was recently delighted to have been named as PSV (Police Support Volunteer) of the Year for Avon and Somerset and the Force's nominee for the Regional PSV Award at a glittering ceremony in Yeovil, where Mike received his certificate of nomination from Avon & Somerset Constabulary - Police & Crime Commissioner, Mrs Sue Mountstevens.
Mike said, "I have been very flattered to be nominated for this prestigious award and to have had the opportunity to share a lunch with all the other, very deserving candidates. As a volunteer, I enjoy my role as editor of the Senior Siren and value the experiences that it brings to my daily life. I would encourage more people to consider giving up just a small amount of their time to assist others, it can make such an enormous and profound difference"
