YLiS Gold Award for Cheddar Guide

Jessica Way was the first Cheddar Guide to achieve the Lions Young Leader in Service Award, which was presented to her during the Axbridge District Guide Service, held at Wedmore Church on Wednesday 27th March, 2019.  Jessica had completed 206.5 hours of community service in the year, so was well deserving of her Gold YLiS Award.  Jessica also received a Young Leader Award from the District Commissioner.  

Friend of Cheddar Vale Lions, Bev Davies MJF, also received a well deserved award for 20 Years Service to the Girl Guide Association.
