FOR the past two years Lydia Aspinall has given her time voluntarily to help with the Earsham Brownies pack.
And that commitment was recognised on Friday evening at the annual Bungay Civic Evening when she was awarded the Trevor Collyer Cup as the young person who has given outstanding service to the community over the past year.
Lydia, who is 16 and a student at Bungay High School has found time to help the Brownies as a young leader despite studying for her GCSEs, which she takes in the summer.
“She leads a busy life at school but attends the weekly meetings of Earsham Brownies as well as joining in the extra activities and pack holidays,” her citation said.

Lydia, who received the trophy from the Mayor, John Warnes, said she used to be a member of the Brownies herself, and wanted to put something back into it.
“I am really pleased with the award. I really enjoy the work and it is nice to get an award for something you enjoy,” she said.
She said she liked to contribute to the community, and is a member of Bungay's NSPCC junior fundraising committee.
The Trevor Collyer Cup was established five years ago in memory of Trevor Collyer, a member of the Bungay Black Dog Badminton Club who did much to encourage young people.
