Sutton Bridge couple Jenny and Tom Rowe were presented with a Lincolnshire County Council award in recognition of their 30-plus years of voluntary service to the village by county council chairman William Webb and his wife, Jane.
Jenny and Tom have helped people in need, campaigned for good causes and were among founder members of South Lincs Environmental Group.
The couple were due to receive the council Good Citizens’ Award at The Lincolnshire Show but, sadly, Tom’s mum passed away that day and the couple were unable to attend.
Jenny, a former district and parish councillor, said she and Tom were honoured to have been nominated and chosen for the award, but pointed out that much of their work had been in partnership with fellow volunteers.
The couple were delighted that Coun and Mrs Webb had made a special trip to their riverside home to present the award.
