I am absolutely thrilled with this great honour, it’s the cherry on the top of a fantastic year
Adam will be receiving the award from The Lord-Lieutenant of Cheshire, Dave Briggs, at a local presentation, then heading off to Buckingham Palace in May/June to one of the Royal Garden Party’s.
My thanks goes out to those that nominated me, it’s humbling that people have taken the time to submit my name to the cabinet office, I’m over the moon.
