A tea party to celebrate the heroic work of local people was hosted by the council.

Horsham District Council organised an event to honour the community service of fifty people at Warnham Nature Reserve, which is 28 miles from Brighton, on June 20.

People were recognised for their involvement in youth services, nature and environmental conservation, brownie and scout groups and schools.

Awards were also presented to those who helped make sports available to all ages and abilities and volunteers from several charities.

Nigel Emery, Horsham District Council chairman and councillor, said: “The Horsham district community is full of dedicated people who give their time and talents so freely to make such a positive difference to the quality of people’s lives.”

Horsham residents nominated people for these awards.

Councillor Emery hosted the event and personally thanked the winners.

The party was part of the council’s 50th anniversary celebrations.

The council was formed in 1974 when Horsham Urban Council merged with Chanctonbury and Horsham Rural Councils, creating Horsham District Council.
