Children in primary schools and nurseries in New Mills are each to receive a keepsake to mark the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.

Members of New Mills Town Council decided that one of the ways in which they could commemorate the historic milestone was to provide a jubilee medal to the town’s younger residents.

Pupils who attend New Mills Primary School have been among the latest to receive their medals.

They were presented by town council chairman Councillor Janet Carter and fellow town councillor Gwyn Bowers.
