On Thursday of last week it was the annual RNLI awards ceremony at the Barbican in London. As usual, medals for gallantry were awarded by the President of the Institution the Duke of Kent. However, a lot of awards were also made to some of the many volunteers who work tirelessly to keep the Institution afloat.

Our very own Diana receive her gold badge from the Duke of Kent - a just reward for all her sterling work for The Swanage Guild where she has been Souvenir Secretary for many years. She is the mainstay of our fantastic team of helpers not only in the shop but also at various fundraising events in Swanage and the surrounding area with her souvenir stall.

She was accompanied by her husband Dan and also Ann and Robin Tiller.

Our recently opened shop is a fine example of what a can be achieved with a great deal of hard work by volunteers such as Diana. Please visit if you ever get the chance.

Well done Dianna!
