Ex-police chief welcomes 'brilliant' CBE honour
Recently-retired South Yorkshire Chief Constable Med Hughes (53), will pick up a CBE after 32 years in policing.
Mr Hughes, who was told about his impending honour last year, said that it was a “brilliant” way of marking the end of his career.
Mr Tindle started as a constable in Goldthorpe in 1975 and had a variety of roles until his retirement 30 years later.
The New Year Honour roll also had a place for Connie Shepherd, who masterminded Thurcroft’s centenary celebrations in 2009.
The grandmother, who turned 80 yesterday will receive an MBE for services to the community.
