Shop owner, Linda Bygrave said the award was well deserved. She said: "Earlier this year I had flu and pneumonia and had eight weeks of work and Mandy just stepped in and took over even cancelling a week off that she was going to have.

"She also does more than she is paid to do every week, without being asked.

"She has lived in the town all her life, and therefore knows a lot of people and enjoys the contact of the public."

Mrs Baker said: "It made my birthday very special and memorable."
