A ROAD safety stalwart from Great Sutton has received his MBE at Buckingham Palace.
Norman Jarvis, of Glenys Road, has dedicated more than 40 years to campaigning, volunteering and teaching aspiring drivers.
He was recognised in the Queen’s New Year Honours list for his voluntary services to road safety.
Norman headed to London to receive his medal from HRH Prince Charles, accompanied by his three children, Philip, Alison and Ian.
Norman was born in Liverpool and has lived in Ellesmere Port for 50 years.
He spent 30 years as a tanker driver for Shell and eight as a registered driving instructor.
Norman was a member of the Ellesmere Port Road Safety unit when it was in existence and was chairman of the Lorry Driver of the Year committee.
He has taught disabled drivers, assisted with Lorry Driver of the Year competitions and helped dozens of learners pass their driving and advanced driving tests – including Ellesmere Port and Neston MP Andrew Miller.
Norman joined the Institute of Advanced Motorists on the Wirral 46 years ago and remains an active member and senior observer.
