It is not often that the name of a Denton resident appears in a list of national honours but today provides a very welcome exception.
As keen readers of today’s EDP will have spotted, the latest Queen’s Birthday Honours List includes the award of an MBE to our own Alan Squirrell.
Over the last nine years Alan has provided outstanding leadership to see the infant South Norfolk Credit Union turn into the very successful Norfolk Credit Union and provide a critical financial lifeline to thousands of people across the county. It is typical of Alan that in his comments to the EDP he paid tribute to the many volunteers who have helped to make the Credit Union such a success but his own personal contribution has been outstanding.
We should all congratulate him on the thoroughly deserved recognition that his MBE represents.
