A FORMER top policeman turned businessman has sponsored an award which has honoured the green efforts of a youngster from Wednesfield.

Recognition-Express-PR.jpgKeith Walker, who set up Recognition Express North Staffordshire when he retired from Staffordshire Police just over four years ago, has sponsored the Young Persons Award handed out by the Staffordshire Rural Policing Liaison Group for the second year running.

Mr Walker sponsored the award which was picked up by eight-year-old Grace Abbotts at an awards ceremony last week. Grace was nominated by her friends and family for the work she has done in her garden creating havens and habitats for local wildlife. She created a pond in her garden to encourage frogs to breed – which has also attracted newts and snails – and she planted around the pond with mainly wild species to attract birds, mice and hedgehogs.

Grace is an avid birdwatcher and can identify the different species, particularly birds of prey which are her favourites. She is a member of the RSPB, Staffordshire Wildlife Trust and is an active supporter of a horse rescue group where she recently sponsored a horse named Sampson.

The rural policing liaison group was set up 12 years ago and has a network of volunteers across the county. The group works with the police to protect wildlife and tackle the growing problem of crime in rural communities.

Keith, 53 who runs Recognition Express North Staffs with his son Rob, was a superintendent with Staffordshire Police when he retired. He spent 30 years with the police and decided to go into business with his son when he hung up his uniform.

Mr Walker said: “I came into contact with the group during my time with the police and worked very closely with them. The work that they do is very important and worthwhile and I was always impressed with their commitment and efforts. The work that the group does in the countryside is very important and something well worth supporting.

When I left the police I stayed in touch with the liaison group and when the chance came up to sponsor the awards I was only too happy
to help.

“Grace is a young girl who on her own has decided to do something to help the wildlife in her area. We should all be following her example,
she thoroughly deserves her award.”

Said Faye Burton, founder of the Staffordshire Rural Policing Liaison Group: “I have known Keith since 2002 and he has always been so
supportive of our group. He loves wildlife as much as I do, so when he offered to sponsor the award I couldn’t have been more delighted.”

Recognition Express specialises in the sourcing, manufacture and supply of branded promotional products and clothing to businesses and
organisations in the Stoke-on-Trent and Staffordshire area.

Mr Walker said: “I was with the police force for a long time and carried out various roles but running the business is a very different experience. Of course things are tough at the moment but we are pleased with the way things have been going. The business seems to be doing well and we are kept busy by the customers.”

Market leading Recognition Express specialises in name badges, signage, promotional items, awards and plaques, corporate clothing,
promotional merchandise, corporate gifts, ID security badges, pop-up displays, banner stands and poster printing.
