“It’s wonderful to be recognised for all my hard work serving the public of Guernsey over the years. I love my job and all the challenges that come with it, no two days are ever the same” said Sonia.

Paramedic John Le Noury has been with the service for 22 years, was originally a grower and did not plan a career with the emergency services.
