The Cheltenham Local History Society, at its Committee Meeting on 30th April 2014, was unanimous in its decision to give this year’s Peter Smith Award to Brian Torode, posthumously, in recognition of his outstanding services to the society and his many contributions to the knowledge and understanding of local history.

On Tuesday 27th May 2014, Richard Barton was invited to the Society’s Annual General Meeting to receive the Award on behalf of his late friend. The £25 cheque for Water Aid was presented by Deputy Mayor, Councillor Simon Wheeler. Elaine North prepared a display about Brian’s life and, in conjunction with this tribute, a further £58 was raised for Water Aid in his memory.
