Two Conwy residents have been recognised for their outstanding voluntary services to the community.

Diana Hughes and Ray Castle were awarded the title of Honorary Bailie by the mayor of Conwy and constable of the castle, cllr Sam Cotton, at a ceremony recently.

Edward 1’s 1284 Charter for Conwy allows the creation of two Bailies (an alternative word for Bailiff) to recognise their outstanding voluntary service.

The town council have been awarding these honours since 2015.

Mrs Hughes & Mr Castle received a framed copy of the charter & a crystal paperweight.

Mrs Hughes runs Clwb Yr Efail in Conwy and has been in post for more than 18 years.

The town council said her commitment to providing a service for older people has now been recognised.

A council spokesperson said: "The positive effects upon the quality of life to countless members who have attended the club is remarkable."

Mr Castle has been with 1st Conwy scouts for more than 40 years.

During this time Mr Castle has enhanced the childhood of numerous local boys and girls.

He was recently awarded The Silver Acorn award and was invited to the St George’s Day celebrations in Windsor Castle.
