I would like to thank everyone, including my family and late husband Bas, who has helped and supported me over the last 45 years with my efforts of doing things worthwhile in Sutton Bridge and Long Sutton.
I have enjoyed doing the many events and fundraisers. Parishioners, young and not so young, have given me so much help and I have made so many friends.
Thank you so much to whoever nominated me for the MBE, it is a great honour and I feel very humbled to everyone.
There is a lot of goodwill and wonderful people in both parishes and I am proud to be one of them.
