A total of five residents from Northwood and Moor Park have been recognised in the Queen’s Birthday Honours for their respected work. 

A Northwood couple have both been awarded British Empire Medals (BEM) for their services to Holocaust Education.

Ann and Bob Kirk, 90 and 93, both survived Kindertransport and now work tirelessly to raise awareness of the Holocaust and the experience of Kindertransport. 

Kindertransport was a series of rescue efforts for children which brought thousands of refugee Jewish children to Great Britain from Germany between 1938 and 1940. 

The Northwood couple both came to the UK separately on the Kindertransport, and sadly, neither of them saw their parents again. They met at a club for young refugees and married in 1950 and started a family in the UK. 

Dr Dwain Anthony Neil was awarded an Order of the British Empire (OBE) for services to the British African Caribbean community.

He also co-founded Reach Society which encourages and works with young black men and boys to make their mark on the world and achieve everything to their potential.

Dr Gulbash Singh Chandok, from Moor Park was awarded a Members of the Order of the British Empire (MBE) for services to general practice. He is a senior partner at Guru Nanak Medical Centre. 

Councillor Reena Ranger is “overwhelmed and proud” with being awarded an OBE for her services to BAME women. 

The district councillor for Three Rivers, represents Moor Park and Eastbury ward and is chair of Women Empowered (WE), an organisation which aims to engage, encourage and empower women to be the best individuals they can be.
