Awards for youngsters

This pair were pleased as punch to receive their Duke of Edinburgh certificates off Derbyshire’s Lord Lieutenant.

The sadly now deceased Colonel Peter Hilton, who once held the regional post is shown here presenting the awards to two members of the Amber Valley Achievers Club.

The club provided activities for youngsters with learning difficulties across Amber Valley.

This shot was kindly brought into us by Ripley woman Margaret Bailey, who helped run the group for more than 30 years.

Bridget O’Malley and Jonathan Price are pictured receiving certificates.
