Congratulations to Mike Dooling who travelled down to Buckingham Palace last Thursday to be presented with his MBE from Princess Anne. The Princess Royal presented the award, in a ceremony held in the Throne Room, with the Countess of Wessex’s string orchestra playing classical music in the background.

Mike was named as one of the recipients of the award in the New Year’s Honours List for his services to athletics in Merseyside.

Congratulations Michael Dooling MBE.
