A former councillor was recognised for her service to the district at a special presentation this week.
Pauline Bradberry JP accepted her Honorary Alderman ceremonial medal and certificate, from Chairman Rupert Reichhold, at East Northamptonshire House on 13 July.
Born and raised in Easton-On-The-Hill, Pauline was commended for her years of service to the district council, as a parish councillor, as a school governor and in many community projects.
She served on 10 district council committees over the years and enjoyed a year as Chairman 2006-7 representing East Northamptonshire at many events.
The prestigious honour was also awarded to former councillors John Richardson MBE, Albert Campbell and Clive Wood at the full council meeting on 18 May 2016, but Pauline was unable to attend the service.
Pauline said “I’m truly honoured to have received this accolade. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of council life and feel privileged to have been part of a great team at East Northamptonshire Council that includes officers and councillors working together to make life better for those who live, work and play here.”
