He has also acted as trans­port man­ager look­ing af­ter the unit’s am­bu­lances and used his ra­dio com­mu­ni­ca­tion skills to link with Raynet to pro­vide cover at events such as the Mac­cles­field marathons.

Pat, 80, also a long serv­ing mem­ber, helped to run the Bad­gers, a group for six to ten-year-olds, in ad­di­tion to do­ing a large num­ber of event du­ties and look­ing af­ter the stores for the unit.

Barrie Davies, chair of the Cheshire County Priory Group of the Or­der, said: “I have seen first hand the work that Pat and John have done around the Mac­cles­field area for the ben­e­fit of the com­mu­nity and I am proud of their ef­forts and those of other vol­un­teers lo­cally.

“The hon­our is given for a lot more than just long ser­vice.

“Both Pat and John have been in­volved in St John, as well as do­ing nor­mal first aid du­ties they have done quite a lot ex­tra in the way of other things through­out the com­mu­nity.”
