Dave was quick to recognise the efforts of other volunteers in Badminton, both within both Marske BC and JBC and other areas of Tees Valley.

At the End of September, Marske BC held a Party to celebrate their 25 Year history.


Roger Cook, Tees Valley Badminton Development Officer, took the opportunity to present Dave with both the Tees Valley Sport Award Certificate and the YV05 Medal, coined by the Royal Mint.


A few days after the Party came the “Icing on the Cake” when Dave received an invitation to attend a Reception, to be given at Buckingham Palace by the Queen and Duke of Edinburgh at the beginning of November, to recognise the Year of the Volunteer 2005.


Well Done Dave and Congratulations from us all.
