I felt really honoured to get the award too as their was such esteemed company there. Alastair Fothergill from the BBC NHU received a medal too, as did Simon Reeve from the TV (Indian Ocean series plus a few others). On top of there were professors and educators, all contributing to the world of geography and the need to enthuse children to care more about the world around them. Thanks to Giles and Louise for hosting me and all that I managed to chat to during the day. It will occupy pride of place in my office, a reminder that some people on this planet do recognise what I do and appreciate it. Thank you RGS, you made my year get even better (if that were possible) and wifey was there to see it all too!!!
