Margaret Brooks and Elizabeth Pearson were invited to a celebration at County Hall.

County councillor Wendy Pattison was asked to nominate two volunteers from her Longhoughton ward who deserved recognition. She said: “I decided to ask two people who have shown great commitment towards the community and the village of Craster over many years .”
