TWO locals from Brampton have been presented with community achievement awards at the areas annual Christmas Light switch on.

John Healey MP presented the certificates at an event at Brampton Community Centre on Friday - it was attended by around 300 people and had performances from fire eaters and stilt walkers.

The awards went to Stanley Walton, of Becknoll Road, Brampton and Lorraine Naylor, of Knollbeck Crescent, Brampton.

Stanley has volunteered for over 30 years in local schools and at the community centre, where he runs the senior citizens’ group and helps transport members who otherwise wouldn’t be able to attend.

Lorraine runs the lunch club at the community centre, and regularly helps at events and classes.
