First of all Bernie congratulations, i hope you don't mind Bernie but i thought this should be brought to the attention of the Bootle Times Forum.
Bernie is far too modest a person to tell the forum, but just recently he attended a Police Bravery Awards ceremony that took place in London, he received a Gallantry Award for his prompt actions at a flats complex on Bibbys Lane in Bootle last February.
I will let you put the meat on the bones Bernie and hope that you can put some pictures on the pic of the day thread. (sorry about not asking your permission to post Bernie, i know you would have KBd me). Well done. JJC.
ps, i wonder how many members looked at the thread heading and thought, oh no we've lost Bernie now, (i do have a history of posting bad news)

I do hope we haven't frightened Bernie away, by putting him in the lime light. Not heard a lot from him, even about Everton. :D
