The Jamaica Inn on Bodmin Moor was also recognised after the pub threw open its doors for those stranded in the snow on the A30 this winter.

The awards were handed out by the chairman of Cornwall Council, Councillor Mary May.

She said:  “It was an amazing occasion, and it is always an honour to recognise those people who help to make Cornwall such a special place to live.

“They do not do their work for the recognition, but from a sense of community spirit and pride, and are a real inspiration to us all.”
