Last time I reacted to the New Year’s Honours List, I sent a quote from Chamberlain (from Birmingham) to Dennis Pettitt (from Birmingham) when he was awarded a knighthood.
My favourte line on this is how all the Notts Conservative Agents for MPs who lost in 1997 got OBEs, and all of those who served the Labour MPs declined them in 2010.
Three of this year’s honours reflect on The Meadows.
Carol Norman – heateacher of Welbeck School;
Le-Roy Edwards – who has run an education, training and employment centre in Wilford Grove;
Marcellus Baz – who runs a youth boxing club from Portland Centre, and previously from QWCC.
