We would like to congratulate Martyn and Arthur on their British Empire Medal awards, announced today in the Queen’s Birthday Honours list in the London Gazette. Martyn and Arthur are part of a team also known as ‘Dad’s Army’ or B4SW. Their work over the last few years has enabled hundreds of rural people in their area to join the B4RN network and reap the benefits of one of the best connections in the world. They have also built a wonderful network of supporters and volunteers, which in itself is a fantastic achievement. Well done to them both, from all at B4RN HQ, a great honour, highly deserved.
