The efforts of a voluntary group who have supported Bungay residents throughout the coronavirus pandemic have been recognised with a visit from the High Sheriff.
Edward Creasy visited Bungay Community Support last week at the town's Fisher Theatre, where he praised those involved.
He said: "My meeting with BCS was inspirational. It was very fulfilling to hear the stories of the thoughtful and inspirational way in which the community of Bungay has successfully responded to the challenges of the pandemic.
"It's a wonderful example of the county's quiet determination, resilience and positive approach.
"I am delighted that the spirit shown by Bungay will continue to thrive as we all get used to the new ways of living with Covid-19."
