Oliver and Maximillian Le Feuvre have received a Lions Award for Outstanding Service to the Community on behalf of their grandfather, former local radio presenter Paul Le Feuvre.

Paul died in 2018 before the Lions were able to present it to him, and then Covid stopped his family accepting it on his behalf.

April 13 was the first time the Lions could meet Paul’s widow Liz, their son Jean Marc Le Feuvre, his wife Liz and the two boys, who had travelled from Switzerland to be with their family for Easter.

Handing over the award and a framed picture of their grandfather to the boys, Alton Lions president Moira Baker said: “Paul was a very special man. He was someone who, with your grandmother’s support, gave unstintingly of his time and would always go that extra mile to help.

“He was a great friend of Alton Lions Club and passionate about the power of radio to communicate with the wider community. He was heavily involved in hospital radio and a founder member of Wey Valley community radio.

"He was also very proud of his family and especially of his son, your father, and of you, his two grandsons. We hope that in accepting this award it will remind you of how very proud we are of him.”
