A woman who has been engaged in voluntary work over six decades has been made a Member of the Order of British Empire at Buckingham Palace.
Maggie Dixon, of Hoveton, was presented with the MBE medal by Prince William in a ceremony at the palace, after the award was announced as part of the Queen's Birthday Honours in June.
Mrs Dixon, 74, received the award in recognition of her contribution to justice and her voluntary work in the UK and abroad.
She was a magistrate for 23 years, and is currently chairman of the independent monitoring board at HM Prison Bure.
Mrs Dixon said she was involved in sponsoring more than 100 children in Nepal and supporting their education. She added: "I also brought four people here and they all achieved degrees at either City College or UEA."
