George handed honour for his hockey service

Have your say

A retired schoolteacher has received royal and national recognition for his services to men’s hockey over the past 50 years.

George Robson, 70, from Blyth, took up the sport when studying at Durham University, and has been honoured at the Blackpool Hockey festival.

At a celebratory luncheon he was presented with a letter sent on behalf of the Queen congratulating him on his remarkable record of loyalty and dedication to the festival, which he has served for more than 50 years.
