An Arbroath volunteer who was awarded the British Empire Medal received her award at a presentation on Tuesday evening.
Pat Millar was named as a recipient of the honour in the Queen’s Birthday Honours list in June.
And on Tuesday evening, she travelled to the home of Lord Lieutenant of Angus, Georgiana Osborne, to be presented with her medal.
Her family and friends also gathered for the ceremony which was also attended by Angus Provost Helen Oswald.
Mrs Millar is a former chair of The Royal Burgh of Arbroath Community Council and a member of the Arbroath Fairtrade Action Group.
However, she was awarded the BEM for her services to the Care Inspectorate.
The organisation is the independent body in charge of inspecting and supporting the improvement of care, social work and child protection services for the benefit of the people who use them.
It works with organisations such as local authorities, businesses, voluntary organisations and charities.
And Mrs Millar is part of the ‘Involving People’ group, which advises the Care Inspectorate about those in care and their carers.
Speaking at the time she found out she was to receive the award, Mrs Millar said she was “delighted”.
She said: “I have to say I’m very honoured and also very humbled to be receiving this award.
“Her Majesty has seen fit to award me this gong in the Birthday Honours List and I’m delighted.
“It is good to know that ordinary folk like myself are also given the chance to be recognised.
“I have worked within Arbroath for many years now with organisations such as the community council as I like to get involved with the fabric of community life.
“I never think about receiving awards or anything.”
