Veteran Cromer lifeboat supporter Jim Page's has been honoured for his dedicated work running classes for youngsters on behalf of the RNLI.
Mr Page was presented with a RNLI special achievement award at a ceremony in London.
He has become the face of the RNLI's 'Respect the Water' campaign in the region and has made dozens of visits to schools and groups to teach about the dangers of the sea and inland waters.
Mr Page, who has been helping the lifeboat for more than 15 years and served as Cromer RNLI's treasurer, uses a puppet show to illustrate his safety talks to youngsters.
He said: 'It was huge honour to go the London's Guildhall for the presentation. I love the work. Up here on the Norfolk coast it is vital that young people learn about the potential dangers of the sea as soon as possible. These campaigns do save lives.'
