George Gibbs worked tirelessly as the clerk of Wanborough Parish Council for many years. He kindly donated some money to reward the efforts of the children at school. These awards are known as the George Gibbs Awards and are given at the end of the school year, in a ceremony held at St Andrews Church with a member from The Parish Council in attendance. At the same time Wanborough Primary School also remember their former colleague Terry Hall with an award for Art. Terry assisted the children and teachers with their art work and lessons in the school from 2009 until 2012. He wasn't officially an artist but was talented and just "wanted to help". Terry worked as a volunteer at Wanborough Primary School and his support for the children's artistic skills was much appreciated,
