Cllr Kevin Miller, who met the children at Long Eaton Town Hall on Friday, said: “It is a great honour to meet these award winners and to salute their achievements.

“They are a fine example of the many young people we have here in Erewash who are doing good things and setting the standards when it comes to bravery, kindness and positive attitudes.”
