Dedication and long service have been rewarded for four people from Fenland.

Members of staff at Cambridgeshire County Council have received awards for completing more than 25 years’ service with the authority.

They were presented with their awards by council vice-chairman Sebastian Kindersley at a special ceremony at Shire Hall.

Cllr Kindersley said: “Everyone receiving awards did so because of the outstanding contribution they have made and the many services it provides.

“I am delighted their loyal service and dedication has been recognised and I am very pleased to be a part of that. Congratulations to them all.”

The 15 recipients, who between them had clocked up 368 years’ service, included four from Fenland.

They were Elaine Newell, deputy superintendent registrar at the Cambridge and March registration offices, who has worked for the council in several roles since 1988, former Burrowmoor primary school headteacher Sue Wilson, who retired from her job as head of the primary service at the County Council last year after 34 years’ service with the authority.
