Service medal presented to Burnham St John ambulance volunteer

Diane Britton of the local Highbridge and Burnham St John Ambulance Cadet Division has this week been awarded a medal at the St John Ambulance County AGM for her voluntary service.

Medals are only awarded on completion of 12 years' efficient service for the organisation - and Diane has actually been a member of St John Ambulance for nearly 20 years, having spent some of her time as a Cadet.

A spokesman told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "She joined the local division as a Cadet, aged 10, and in this time progressed to being an Officer of the Cadet Division."

"Her role now involves helping to train the local Cadets at their weekly meeting nights, in addition to helping with the training of the competition team, camping with the Cadets in the summer, and attending other events with the young people."

"Diane also finds time to help out at First Aid duties and is a regular at the speedway. Everyone at Highbridge Cadets would like to congratulate on her achievement and thank her for her commitment to the local young people and the wider organisation."
