The founder of a Lichfield nursery firm has received his OBE.

John Woodward, who is the CEO of Busy Bees, was presented with his medal for services to Childcare and Education just two weeks after co-founder and managing director Marg Randles received her medal from Prince William for her outstanding contribution to children and families.

“If I got my wish I’d have taken every member of staff who’s helped us on our journey to Buckingham Palace – they deserve it every bit as much,” John said. “It’s not an award just for me, it’s an award and national recognition for every single member of staff who’ve helped us achieve our successes.”
