Martin Andrew Receives His Gong

Aylesbury Vale residents were awarded their British Empire Medals (BEM) at a recent ceremony conducted by the Countess Howe at her house, Penn House, on 26th April.

It was the first ceremony of this kind held since King Charles III became the country's new monarch.

Martin Andrew from Haddenham was among the seven Bucks residents receiving medals.

Martin was given royal recognition for his work supporting people in his neighbourhood during the pandemic, in particular for his work in coordinating the volunteers who assisted in the Covid vaccination programme at the local pharmacy.

He is pictured third from the right.
