A MEDICAL student from Sonning Common has been presented with her gold Duke of Edinburgh’s Award.
Anna Broadbent, 19, met the Duke at the awards ceremony at St James’s Palace.
Miss Broadbent, a former Sonning Common Primary School pupil, was presented with her award by actress Penelope Keith in the palace’s Queen Anne Room.
Miss Broadbent was a pupil at Chiltern Edge School when she began working towards the award in November 2011 and finished in May last year when she was in the sixth form at the Kendrick School, Reading.
She spent six months learning to drive, a year playing netball and ran the 2nd Kidmore End brownie pack for 18 months.
