Award-winning cadets make their own award
BBC Radio Lincolnshire's Scott Dalton may not have got a Blue Peter badge for his recent Viking Way charity walk, but he was awarded a shield in recognition of the radio team's efforts by Boston Police Cadets.
The cadets were receiving their own awards for 2017 when Scott received a Police Cadet Shield from Senior Cadet Charlotte Amey, pictured, in recognition of the 147 miles covered by the BBC Radio Lincolnshire team in seven days. They raised more than £15,000 for Children In Need and the cadets added another £50 to the total.
Presentations were made of Duke of Cornwall Community Safety Awards certificates and badges, CVQO BTEC certificates and awards.
Individual awards included best new cadet (Lauren Dickinson), best-presented cadet (Section Leader Beth McGuire), cadet of the year and cadet's cadet of the year (Section Leader Stephen Covell), community achiever of the year (Deputy Section Leader James Meeds) and most improved cadet (Adam Fixter). Making the presentations were PC Jaki Smith, Special Constable Tom De-Zan, Deputy Chief Constable Craig Naylor, Scott Dalton, Mayor of Boston Cllr Bernard Rush and Supt Phil Vickers.
