Community stalwarts were rewarded for the contribution made to their town at a society's awards for excellence.
The Southwold and Reydon Society holds the event every year at its annual general meeting (AGM) to reward 'an individual, a group or a business for inspired and excellent contributions to the Southwold and Reydon environment and experience'.
This year, three people were rewarded for their lifetimes of work in the area, along with the Southwold RNLI crew and fund-raisers.
The awards went to Southwold photographer Stephen Wolfenden, Southwold Allotment Holders' Association president and chairman Michael Mayhew and The Rev Rich Henderson, formerly vicar at St Margaret's Church in Reydon.
Tony Evans, chairman of the Southwold and Reydon Society's awards sub-committee, said: 'The intention always was that it should be wide-ranging and to cover anything and everything where the underlying factor is excellence of contribution to the community.

People can nominate candidates for next year's awards until October on the society's website.
