Over 80 Iceni members and supporters attended Santon Downham Village Hall on the last day of January to enjoy a celebratory evening.
Endurance GB chairman John Hudson (originally from Woodbridge) was, with his wife Jane, a special guest and was pleased to make the presentation of awards.
Many special awards were made on the night including one to Ellie Head, outgoing chair, who after six years in the role received, as part of her presentation, a Peter Beales rose named 'Simply the Best'. Ellie will continue on the Iceni Committee as Secretary in 2015.
Special awards were also made to those participants in the 'Stewarding Scheme' who had shown enthusiasm and diligence in learning about various aspects of the endurance steward's responsibilities.
They were recognised for their time and effort and forgoing their own riding on many occasions in order to help and learn.
It was good to see The Trail Riders Fellowship also in attendance as special guests on what was an enjoyable evening.
Their help is invaluable in both route marking and patrol during pleasure and competitive rides.
