Commenting on her award Debbie said: “It is amazing just how quickly the years have passed; there have been many changes in that time, not least Richmond Villages becoming part of Bupa, while our village remains a place we are all very proud to work.”

Margaret added, “The past 20 years have gone in a flash - I have lots of happy memories from taking part in pantomimes to competition days.  There really is never a dull moment!”
