THE QUEENS AWARD for Voluntary Service is the highest award given by Her Majesty the Queen to a local group in recognition of outstanding work done in the community. It is the MBE for voluntary service. Last Friday the Lord Lieutenant of East Sussex, Peter Field, representing the Queen, presented the award to the Alfriston and Cuckmere Valley Heartstart. The ceremony was attended by the members of Heartstart, those who had been helped, friends and supporters. The High Sheriff of East Sussex, Chris Gebbie OBE was also present. Colin Burden, recently retired after many years of service, accepted the award on behalf of the group.
