BARNSLEY Central MP Dan Jarvis was presented with a branch certificate of appreciation at the local Royal British Legion branch meeting.

Dan, who is a former British Army Major, said: “It was a tremendous honour to be presented with this award.

"Over the years I have enjoyed a fantastic relationship with the branch who do so much for our local armed forces community their work is always carried out with dedication, goodwill and a large dose of humour for good measure.

"I want to thank the many volunteers, members, and partner organisations who support the legion’s vital work, I’m proud to be a member and I encourage others to join.”
