Dedicated RNLI volunteer Charlotte Siely has been presented with a special accolade.
The Happisburgh Lifeboat Station team awarded Ms Siely the Kelvin Baker Achievement Award at the station's annual dinner dance at Royal Hotel Mundesley on Saturday, February 17.
Ms Siely has been on the crew for eight years and has progressed to helm of both station's lifeboats.
In 2017 she took control of a recruitment campaign which saw four new crew and two new shore crew being signed up.
