Honours for England: The Midlands and the East
Queen's Birthday Honours 2002
Find out more about who from the Midlands named in the 2002 Birthday Honours.

The founder of a Leicestershire zoo has been made an MBE in recognition of her conservation work.

Molly Badham began taking in unwanted chimpanzees in the 1950s, and found fame as trainer of the primate stars of the PG Tips tea adverts.

She went on to set up Twycross Zoo in 1963 when her menagerie outgrew her small bungalow.

Others to he honoured include journalist Don Hale, whose tireless campaign helped secure the release of Stephen Downing, who spent 27 years in prison for a murder he did not commit.


It's an acknowledgement of our determination

Don Hale on his OBE for the Stephen Downing campaign
Miss Badham, who lives in Atherstone in Warwickshire, said: "My award will be great for the zoo."

The Reverend Christian Weaver, of the Pilgrim Church in Nottingham, is already an MBE and has now been made a CBE for his services to racial equality.

He has been active in "all kinds of community organisations" across the UK since arriving from Antigua 40 years ago, and has been a Justice of the Peace for some 21 years.

He regards his greatest achievement as the mediation work he has done between ethnic minority communities and the police.

"I feel quite honoured," he said.

Military education

"But perhaps the person who deserves all this is my wife Daisy for putting up with me."

Professor Jack Spence says he was "absolutely chuffed to the nth degree" on hearing he had been named an OBE for teaching services to the Ministry of Defence.

Professor Spence, who lives in Bucknell in Shropshire, said: "I find teaching the military a great pleasure because they are mature and bright and very responsive."

An OBE for Don Hale, the former editor of Derbyshire's Matlock Mercury, is his second major success of the year, after helping secure the release of Mr Downing.

Charitable postman

"When you've had an eight-year battle against two prime ministers, 12 ministers and three home secretaries, you don't really expect such an honour," he said.

"It's an acknowledgement of our determination."

Bromyard postman Keith Lane was "delighted" to be made an MBE for services to Consignia and the community - but wishes his mother could be alive to see his latest honour.

"When I came back from a garden party at Buckingham Palace, she said: 'You're not bad for seven-and-sixpence.'

Artistic memorials

"That was how much the adoption certificate cost."

He has worked for 47 years as a postman, and has also helped raise over 103,000 for the air ambulance.

A Suffolk woman who set up a company and founded a charity after the death of her stepdaughter has been made an MBE.

Harriet Frazer, from Saxmundham, wanted a headstone celebrating Sophie Behrens' life with a line from one of her poems - but was forbidden from doing so by the church authorities.

Lollipop lady

Now she runs a service advising bereaved people on such matters, and putting them in touch with skilled stonemasons.

She has also set up The Memorial Arts Charity that offers training in letter cutting.

"The headstone should be a celebration of the life of the person."

Wolverhampton's longest-serving lollipop lady, June Hartshorn, has been made an MBE for services to road safety.

She has been in the job since 1971 - and hopes to continue past retirement age.
