Doctor Childs we presume?

Top MD's get Doctorates to add to their CV's

 

Happy news in the famous Childs family households this Xmas, as both Robert and Nicholas Childs have been awarded their Doctorates from the University of Leeds and University of Salford respectively.

The brothers, who conduct BAYV Cory in Wales and Black Dyke in Yorkshire were presented with their awards at a ceremony at the Maxwell Hall Salford on Wednesday 11th December by Dr. A. Cooper in the presence of their peers and fellow Doctors, David King and Roy Newsome and a capacity audience of family and academics.

The Doctorates are awarded for research undertaken by both brothers in their chosen fields, although neither worked together. Both are now entitled to use the prefix Dr, although they both commented that they felt they would only do so in appropriate circumstances. Congratulations to both.
