Whilst away in Spain, invites have arrived for myself and my guests to the Palace in May, as per attached photo.
I am still in awe of all those who felt I deserved being put forward for recognition for my love of our wonderful community. In particular I must praise Helen Lloyd, Stephanie Richardson and Ronni Briggs. Who together, with family bits from my son Jonathan and many others put my name forward to the Cabinet Office in London.
I will be a very proud man when I have my two eldest granddaughters, Willow and Honesty, on my arm for this very special and unique day in our lives.. I hope that I can give you a report re the occasion when I return home. The date of the garden party is the 15th of May
