Through the letters page I would like to thank everyone who has very kindly sent their congratulations following the announcement that I have been awarded an MBE in Her Majesty the Queen’s Birthday Honours List.
I am humbled and of course very proud and honoured to have received it. I would like to thank everyone for the support I have received in my role as chairman of the Nidderdale Chamber of Trade over the years. I see the award as being recognition for the community of Pateley Bridge and Nidderdale.
Part of our community is the Nidderdale Herald newspaper who have always got behind projects and campaigns which are for the benefit of the area.
I am honoured that Her Majesty the Queen has recognised and bestowed this honour on Nidderdale.
Keith Tordoff MBE
