As one of her last official duties before retiring after 30 years as BB Captain, Margaret Miskin presented Sir Henry Aubrey-Fletcher, the Queen's representative in Buckinghamshire, with a Friends of BB badge. She said, "Sir Henry has never hesitated to come and present these top awards on the many occasions we have asked him."
Steve Kemp, the new BB Captain said that Margaret was a hard act to follow and he was glad she was staying on to help. "The Brigade made a presentation to Margaret in July but can we please show as a church, with a round of applause, our appreciation for her 30 years as Captain of the Brigade." Sir Henry also paid tribute to Margaret's long service and said that he was always happy to respond to her calls to get involved. So for all those years of week in and week out service, from all of us — A Very Big Thank You Margaret.
