Also celebrating is Judith Morris, from Halesowen, who has been awarded the British Empire Medal for almost 60 years of work with St John Ambulance.

Mrs Morris joined the charity as a cadet in 1959 and worked her way up to become a unit manager.
She is now responsible for training the next generation of life-savers.

The 66-year-old said: “It's an honour not just for me but for a team of people, and the young cadets we have got at Halesowen.

“I have dealt with a few road accidents and when somebody is unwell I am able to help.
It is just about having the knowledge and confidence to help somebody.”
