A TEENAGER from Royston has been honoured at the St John Ambulance's annual awards ceremony.

Pippa Martin, 16, received the Grand Prior - the highest recognition cadets can achieve with the St John Ambulance.

She said: "I'm really pleased to have received my Grand Prior and feel proud to have been a part of the ceremony.

"I worked hard towards the award, so it was nice to be presented with it in front of my family and friends.

"Since becoming involved with St John Ambulance Hertfordshire, I've learned important skills, and made new friends, so it's a big part of my life."

The award marks at least three years of sustained performance, studying eight different areas of work, including communications, working in the community, and the history of the organisation.

Pippa's sister Shelly, 19, also achieved the Grand Prior, but was not able to attend the ceremony, because of university commitments.

Brian Wingate of St John Ambulance Hertfordshire said: "We are very proud of our dedicated volunteers who work extremely hard for the charity.
