Anne Penrose (left) and Freda Stein are unsung heroines no more. They are pictured posing with Yateley's Town Mayor, Coun. Maria Armstrong.

The two ladies were honoured for their voluntary work over the years and presented with commenorative pictures.

Anne has helped with the local Guides for the past 30 years, while Freda has been a helper at the Red Cross Brunch Club for a quarter of a century.

The occasion was the Mayor's annual reception at The Tythings - part of her efforts to foster a better community spirit in Yateley
