The Commandant, Officers, Adults and Cadets of LNR Army Cadet Force (ACF) congratulate Teresa Walton’s commitment to the ACF after it was recognised by the award of a British Empire Medal (BEM) in the New Year’s Honours List.

Teresa originally joined LNR ACF, as its Administration Officer, in 1989 where her dedication and commitment is well known. On retiring from County HQ in 2007 she has continued to support LNR ACF in many ways including stepping in for the Public Relations Officer, developing a highly acclaimed County Website and supporting the County at all level of public relations, social media and marketing.

She has also attended numerous Annual Camps where she produced its Daily Newsletters and articles for the website and local press.

Thanks to her unswerving professional dedication the efforts of adults and cadets alike have been recognised in all manner of publications both locally and at ACF national level.Despite more recent restrictions regarding her mobility she has continued to support everything regarding the LNR ACF website, PR and social media without complaint.

On hearing about her award Teresa said: “I am delighted, but also feel extremely privileged to have been awarded the BEM. LNR ACF works as a team and there are many members who dedicate their time selflessly to what I firmly believe, is the best voluntary youth organisation in the country.

“This award shows that from time to time our efforts are recognised at the highest level and I hope that everyone will share in my great pleasure at accepting this award. It is an honour to work with such dedicated and committed people and I would like to thank them all, past and present, for their comradeship and help during the past 25 years”
