Two of my Tynedale residents have been given Honours by the Queen.
Alex Waters has made an MBE in recognition of his support for youth sport. I know Alex well and he does a huge amount of work for young people and sport, he is a former Chairman of Prudhoe Football Club and involved with the Hexham Mini League and Sports Council. An honour well deserved.
Eileen Rogerson, has been subpostmistress at Kirkwhelpington Post Office for the last 25 years, and has been awarded the British Empire Medal for her services to her community.
Congratulations to them both!
