THE first Burton Awards for community service have been presented by Kirkburton and Highburton Community Association.
Sandra Spivey was awarded a plaque for her work with the Salvation Army and Trevor Fawcett received one for his art and geography clubs at the village hall in Highburton.
The awards were presented after they were suggested by Howard Boothroyd, a member of Kirkburton and Highburton Community Association.
Miss Spivey, of Kirkburton, revitalised the local branch of the Salvation Army.
She was nominated for the award by the Silver Threads Over-55s Club, which she established.
Mr Fawcett, of Northfield Lane, Highburton, produces the quarterly Burton Bulletin community newsletter.
He was nominated for the award by members of the art club he runs at the village hall.
