Duke of Edinburgh’s Award students 
received their medals at a presentation held at Spalding Grammar School on Thursday evening.

Representatives from Spalding’s High School, Grammar School and the now-defunct Open Award group gave talks about the gains they had made from involvement in the scheme.

Sam Nundy, last year’s Spalding Round Table chair and a bronze, silver and gold award holder, gave out the certificates and closed the evening by speaking about the benefits the Award had given him, both as a candidate and in his working life.

A special award was made to Beryl Clay, who has been field worker for the award in the Boston, Skegness and Spalding areas for many years.

She has also run Open Award groups for those unable to join school or other organisation groups.

Unfortunately scheme reorganisation has meant feld workers and open award groups no longer exist. The South Holland Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Committeetherefore wanted Beryl to receive a parting gift as a token of friendship and gratitude for all she has done. It was presented by Chairman Jason Martindale (right).
