Two “invaluable” members of the Three Holes community have been honoured for their 50 years’ voluntary work each.
Doris Forth, 86, and Rita Cuss, 85, were awarded at the monthly village cinema screening at Three Holes Village Hall on Sunday (September 19).
The trustees of the Three Holes Village Hall & Playing Field charity arranged the unveiling of a commemoratory plaque in the hall. Doris and Rita were also presented with bouquets.
“We feel it is so important to thank people like Doris and Rita and make sure their invaluable, hard work is remembered in years to come,” said vice-chairman Brian Range.
“It seems to get harder and harder to find people willing to volunteer and the fact that these ladies contributed so much for so long should not be forgotten.”
