Ex School Governor honoured with the British Empire Medal in New Year's Honours List

12th June 2014

Ex Christleton Primary School Chair of Governors, Margaret Croston came into school to show the children in Years 5 & 6 the British Empire Medal she received as part of the Queen's New Year's Honours List in recognition of services to the local community of Christleton and Chester.  Margaret told the children how she received the news from the Cabinet Office in November 2013 and how she had to keep it secret until January 1st 2014-even from family and friends. The children heard about the presentation ceremony and about the Buckingham Palace Tea Party.  Margaret and her husband were invited as part of the honour of receiving the award.  Margaret encouraged the children to volunteer to do things for people in the community and to be good citizens.
