Everyday Dales heroes who make a difference in their communities have been honoured at a special ceremony.

The achievements of dozens of people were celebrated at the annual Derbyshire Dales District Council Community Awards.

The authority appealed to local people to nominate individuals and groups who make an extra special contribution in their communities.

So many nominations came in this year for people who make a difference where they live in the Derbyshire Dales that the event had to be split into two area ceremonies.

Cllr Tony Millward presented the awards and the winners were: Mrs Frances Higton, Gerald Worsencroft, Susan Smethurst, Beryl Whitworth, Carolyn Shepherd,Laurence Knighton,Sheila Hammersley, Andrew Wager, Megan Mosedale, Barry Thraves, Chris Carr, Ted Hickmott, Ashbourne Street Bunting Team, Simon Biggs, and Andrea Shipley.
