Local RNLI volunteer Barbara Gardner has been given a special award in recognition of her 12 years of service to the life-saving organisation.

Barbara, who is the wife the current Chairman of the Bexhill Branch, David Gardner, was presented with the award at the recent monthly coffee morning of the Bexhill Branch of the RNLI, at the Bexhill Sailing Club.

Barbara ensured the annual street collection was well organised and as a consequence raised substantial funds for the RNLI. She also organises the monthly coffee mornings, taking time to decorate tables, organised a raffle, a cake table, a craft table and an RNLI gift stall for all visitors.

Barbara is pictured here receiving the award from club treasurer Malcolm Viner.
