TWO former Huddersfield police officers have been honoured by Rotary International and awarded Paul Harris Fellowships.
The awards, named after the organisation’s founder, are given for outstanding service to Rotary ideals. Peter Bottomley and John Daniel are both members of the Huddersfield Pennine lodge and both are former presidents.
Club secretary Geoffrey Bunch said they have made an outstanding contribution to the club, to fund raising in the community and to international projects. Their contribution had revolutionised the club.
Mr Bottomley (left) became a West Riding police cadet in 1957. In 1960 he transferred to Huddersfield as a constable. He reached the rank of detective superintendent before retiring in 1993. John Daniel joined the former Huddersfield Borough Force in 1961, transferring to the West Riding in 1965. He became a detective inspector and ended his career in the training department in Wakefield. He retired in 1991 setting up his own training school.
