Olympic archer from Lothersdale gets ‘Freedom of District’
3:30pm Friday 18th October 2013 in News
An Olympic archer from Lothersdale has been awarded the Freedom of the District by Craven Council.
Danielle Brown received the recognition at an event hosted by the council.
She was made honorary freewoman of Craven District last month, which is the highest honour the council can bestow. She accepted the accolade alongside rower Andrew Triggs Hodge, who was made an honorary freeman.
Danielle was rewarded for her success in winning six world or Olympic individual titles and three world team titles. She has also won 11 other international competition medals since winning her first World Championship title in 2007.
She said the day had been particularly special, as it was the first time some of her family had been able to attend one of her awards ceremonies.
Council chairman, Coun-cillor Donny Whaites, said: “It’s absolutely fantastic to be awarding Andy and Danielle the freedom of the district.
“They have both achieved remarkable things and brought huge recognition to the Craven area. They now sit alongside the Yorkshire Regiment as proud recipients of this worthy status.”
