Miss J. N. Easdale, who has been an official visitor to the Nelson Hospital for over 4-0 years, was invested with the British Empire Medal by the Governor-General, Sir Arthur Porritt, at a short ceremony during the Vice-Regal party's visit to Nelson. She was awarded the medal for meritorious service to the community.

The assistant Scoutmaster of the Tahuna Scout group, Mr Bob Williscroft, was awarded the Wood Badge recently. The badge, which hangs around Mr Williscroft's heck, is the highest award available in New Zealand to Scout leaders.
