Cheshire foster carers to receive 2018 MBE

By on January 3, 2018

A Cheshire couple who have fostered more than 20 children will be receiving an MBE in 2018.

From Alsager, Ann and Arthur Frost, both aged 72, will be awarded the honour for services to children and families.

The pair had originally set out to be short term carers but became long-term carers for two adopted 6 week old twins with Down’s syndrome.

Originally short-term carers, the pair became long-term carers when they adopted twins with Down’s syndrome at six weeks old.

They also received a long service award from Cheshire East Council in 2016.

Meanwhile, Edward Timpson, a former education minister, has become a CBE for his public and parliamentary services.  The 44 year old said he was “delighted and humbled”.
