South Mids member David Joyce, aka “the Hairy DJ” is the recipient of the Barrie Williams Trophy and the 2020 BMMC Marshal of the Year award, but Covid regulations delayed the presentation of the trophy.
On learning that Dave is due to go into hospital in May and will be absent from the “bank” while he recuperates Chris Whitlock arranged for an impromptu presentation of the award and the Barrie Williams Trophy in his garden on 31st March.
Following the presentation Dave commented “Many thanks for yesterday’s surprise Chris – a great mood lifter for me & you even sorted out brilliant sunshine for the photos. Very many thanks to BMMC for selecting me for the award – a shared tribute with the many folk who have supported and encouraged me in my “career” since May 2007. Still need another 59 days in orange to hit 1,000 days.”
BMMC Chair Nadine Lewis added: “Congratulations Dave, we wish you a speedy recovery and look forward to seeing you on the bank later this year.”
