David Truesdale, local resident and Chairman of the Planning Sub-committee of Haddenham Parish Council, has been awarded an MBE in the Queen's birthday honours list.
Despite the tremendous hard work that David does on behalf of the Parish Council here in Haddenham, it is for his other activities that he has been primarily recognised. He co-founded a Blackbird Leys charity called CDI in 1992, and is being recognised for services to the community in Oxford.
He said: "I am amazed and delighted to have been nominated. CDI focused on two projects, a youth project for young people aged 19 to 25, and the Clockhouse Project for older people, which runs a series of activities.
He added: "One of the main strands of the youth project runs throughout the summer and introduces young people to a series of activities including dance and photography."
“These two projects together help hundreds of local people annually through a wide variety of activities."
"I have been chairman of the charity for the past 10 years and I think we have had some real success stories. I am particularly thrilled on behalf of the fantastic work by the staff and my fellow trustees."
Haddenham.net offers its warmest congratulations to David.
