What a night to remember as Fenland salutes its unsung heroes in the annual Pride in Fenland Award Ceremony
A boxer, a pair of café owners and one very special little girl were all among those incredible people honoured at this year’s Pride in Fenland Awards.
This was the 12th annual presentation ceremony, held this year at the Wisbech St Mary Sports and Community Centre, and it saw a first as young Kayla Hay went to pick up the Young Citizen of the Year Award. The Chatteris schoolgirl was given a rousing standing ovation and there was hardly a dry eye in the packed hall as she walked to the podium to receive her prize with proud mum and nominator Siana Hay at her side.
Kayla was nominated for a number of reasons, explained Councillor Mark Buckton, Fenland's portfolio holder for young people, before presenting the award.
