Members of Ash Vale St John Ambulance Brigade's adult division were honoured at the group's annual awards ceremony.

Anita Stokes and Jean Edwards were present to receive a bar to their long service medal, representing 17 years of voluntary help to the community. Robin Hoare was also awarded his bar and Fred Hendon his second bar, but neither was able to be present at the ceremony. Liam Spong, one of Ash Vale's Badgers, was presented with a special award in recognition of the first aid assistance he gave at an accident this year. The deputy county Cadet of the Year, Christine Mann, was presented with a memento of her year. The adult division meets every Monday from 8 - 9:15pm and the Badgers and Cadets meet on Friday evenings.
