Judge David Fletcher, who resides at the North Liverpool 'Community Justice Centre' got a gong in the New Year Honours. He is an unusual judicial creature, who morphs at will from a District Judge to a Circuit Judge. I suspect that one of his greatest achievements is to be a 'community' judge in an area that includes the Liverpool and Everton grounds. I heard him speak once, and he said that he receives frequent invitations to sit in the Directors' Box at both grounds, and sometimes accepts, but has to be, shall we say, diplomatic as to his preferences.
