Peterborough’s St John Ambulance has been presented with the Freedom of the City at the Town Hall.
Ivan Palmer, chair of the Cambridgeshire County Priory Group of the Order of St John, said: “This is a great honour for the unit and its volunteers who have given many thousands of hours’ service to the community since its formation in Peterborough in the early 1900s.
“This will be an inspiration to all volunteers.”
