Stalham community heroes honoured
Two community heroes who have gone out of their way to help youngsters in a north Norfolk town have been honoured with a new award.
Stalham Town Council has set up its own Community Award scheme, with certificates given out annually to people who have made a positive contribution to the town.
The first award has gone to Paul Meale and his brother Jamie Meale, both of whom have helped with the work of Stalham Youth Club over the years.
Paul Meale, 66, from Ingham, first set up the club in 1976, and his brother Jamie, 71, who died in July last year, then joined him in helping run the club.
Paul, who accepted the awards from Stalham Town Council chair, Tony Ross-Benham, said: 'You do no really do it to get an award, but I am really pleased.

'The town council who also helped get the youth cub going all those years ago I do not think the youth club would have flourished if it had not been for the town council.'
Mr Ross-Benham added: 'This award has gone to two members of the community who have done an enormous amount of work for the youth over many many years.'
