    Ex Bishop Ramsey Student and double Paralympic gold medallist Natasha Baker has had two honours bestowed on her within a month.

    On 4th December 2012 Natasha was officially granted the Freedom of the Borough at a special council meeting. She is the first woman to be given the Freedom and was awarded it in recognition of the pride her sporting achievements had brought to the people of Hillingdon. The Mayor of Hillingdon, Cllr Michael Markham, formally unveiled a commemorative pavement plaque in Uxbridge town centre close to her gold postbox  as a permanent reminder of her success.

    As 2013 dawned Natasha was awarded an MBE in the New Year Honours list from the Queen. She told the Uxbridge Gazette ‘It has been a fantastic year and this just tops it off’.  Natasha will receive her award in a ceremony within the next six months.

    Congratulations go to Natasha from Bishop Ramsey School on a very successful 2012.
