CHESTER Adult Phab group have been celebrating in style.

The group, formed 23 years ago to promote social activities for people with and withour disabilities, has just received The Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service, the highest honour given to voluntary groups.

Lynda Hesketh, founder and chair of the group, said: “It’s been a fantastic year. Being invited to the garden party at Buckingham Palace to receive the award was an amazing experience I will never forget.”

Members also met up with their patron, Cherylee Houston, Coronation Street’s Izzy Armstrong and her on screen father, Ian Puleston-Davies, who plays Owen Armstrong, at Manchester’s Midland Hotel.

“It was a great time,” said Lynda, “and was our way of saying a big thanks to Cherylee and Ian.”
