A British Empire Medal (BEM) has been awarded to Robert Denton, 76, for services to the community in Rothwell. He spent 22 years as bailiff of the Rowell Fair Society after 12 years as deputy.

Mr Denton was also a district councillor for 16 years, as well as a special constable between 1960 and 1994. He spent 42 years teaching, including 23 years as headmaster of Walgrave Primary School.

He said: “When the letter passed through the letterbox you think ‘Oh my goodness’.

“I’m thrilled to bits to get the honour but you do feel very humbled by it – there are other people in the area who put as much into the community as I do.

“But I feel proud to be appreciated. It’s a lovely feeling.”
