A DEDICATED district nurse has been made an MBE in the Queen's New Year's honours list.
Sue Evans said she was delighted when she heard she had been recognised for services to health care and the community.
The mother-of-two has been based at Burwell Surgery for 16 years.
"I first heard about it on Friday when the press started calling," Mrs Evans, who is in her 50s, said.
"I've seen so many people come through in my time here and I am absolutely proud as anything.
"I still can't believe you can get an award for something you love doing - I love being based in the community and this is just the icing on the cake."

Soham locality integrated nurses' manager Judy Dance said the honour is well deserved, and that Mrs Evans devotes her own time to voluntary parish nursing as well as her full-time work.
"Sue is wonderful and she is always willing to go the extra mile," she said.
"She's been at the forefront of new initiatives, she case-manages and she is never negative about anything - the most important thing to her are her patients."
