On the 10th of January, a Quarter Peal was rung at New Alresford with the following footnote: “Rung for evensong and to mark the award of the British Empire Medal to Mrs Angela Forder-Stent, tower captain of Twyford, for services to the community in Twyford, Hampshire.”

The following news item appeared in the Echo on December 31st.

Angeal Forder-Stent receives a British Empire Medal for services to the community of Twyford, near Winchester.

During the 2014 flooding crisis she volunteered as a flood co-ordinator and also campaigned to save The Bugle Inn in 2005.

Angela, pictured above, has been a parish councillor for more than 30 years, is a captain of bell ringers at St Mary’s Church in Twyford and has also been involved in the patient participation group at Twyford Surgery for 20 years.

The 68-year-old, who lives in Twyford, was shocked when she found out she was among those honoured.

She said: “I do not understand why I have got it. It was a massive surprise to me. I have been a parish councillor for 30 odd years but there are plenty of other people on the parish council that have done an awful lot, but it is nice to be recognised.”
