    Excellent! I'll jump in by saying well done and congratulations to Mr Read - what a well deserved accolade.
  9. Great news and a lovely man.

    See him today at Hebden Bridge March Contest where we are lucky enough to secure his services as an adjudicator. (Well, he will be in a caravan whilst adjudicating, but you'll be able to see him afterwards!!):clap::clap:

    It was an MBE actually, sorry for being pedantic!

    I emailed David last week and he was kind enough to get straight back to me. He is, of course, delighted and is looking forward to receiving the award.

    I know that, although he rarely contributes to this forum, he does view it from time to time, so all these good wishes will be seen.

    All the best, David. See you at Huntingdon riverside sometime, or in Tescos!
