BE Tamworth

On 24th April 2015, the RMC Historian Elvis Payne was delighted to be invited to the town hall in Tamworth to be presented with a “BE Tamworth” award (in the form of a BE Tamworth pin badge) by the Mayor of Tamworth, Cllr Richard Kingstone .  The badges were awarded for anything positive, “Whether it’s saving a person’s life or collecting a newspaper for a neighbour”

At a presentation in the Town Hall Elvis’ badge was awarded for helping to promote the town through his interest in the Reliant Motor Company, organizing the Reliant vehicle display each year at the Tamworth Heritage Weekend (2005-2014) and for his photography (another of his hobbies).  Cllr Kingstone presented a slide to those present stating:

  • Extensively published with works on Reliant and avid local history fan
  • Supported heritage day
  • Photographer extraordinaire
  • Promotes Tamworth far and wide in a positive way

Whilst working on his book, “The Reliant Motor Company”,  Elvis Payne was also honored to get a letter from Buckingham Palace in which HRH The Princess Royal (who wrote a foreword for his book, “The Reliant Motor Company”) passed on her congratulations for the award. In total, over 300 badges were awarded to Tamworth citizens before Cllr Kingstone ceased to be Mayor on May 26th 2015 with no badges being awarded after that
