The evening was to thank and celebrate the hard work of the local branch.

There were three special awards presented: Ken Mayor received a surprise gift for his hard work after retiring from the role of chairman after eight years’ dedicated service; Mick Cooke was awarded member of the year, the second time his name is now engraved on the shield; and Sue Piergianni was honoured for her hard work with Remembrance Sunday and the Poppy Appeal.
