Mike Horrod was nominated for "his leadership of the planning group on the lead up to Remembrance Day 2017, ready for the 100th anniversary of the end of WW1 in 2018. He led the Group with enthusiasm and spent many, many hours planning and organising the events.

His hard work made the events the successes they were. The 100th anniversary Remembrance Parade and Service were the best attended events in living memory. In just a few words I cannot explain what he did, and how important it was to this town. Thank you Mike"
