     We are pleased to tell you that in front of their families and friends,  Rachel Tonkin and Ned Nuzum have been presented with their British Empire Medals at a  ceremony held in County Hall Truro on November 8th 2021. Past Covid lock downs and restrictions mean they have only now been able to receive their medals, presented by The Lord Lieutenant of Cornwall, Colonel Edward Bolitho OBE. 

Rachel was honoured in the 2020 New Year Honours List to commemorate her “50 years of service to the RNLI” (and still counting Rachel!).  Ned was honoured in the 2021 New Year Honours List for “being at the heart of the community working tirelessly to promote the RNLI at every opportunity” 

Very well done and very well deserved
