Mike Nichols is an inspiration to us all in our Northamptonshire village. In the beautiful place where Kinky Boots was inspired, Mike works tirelessly with the Air Cadets, the Royal British Legion, the Royal Air Force Association, the Drama Group and the Community Speedwatch to make our village a better place to live and raise children. Mike is an energetic 70 year old who is the father figure to his fatherless grand-daughter and the anchor to his actress wife. He brings us all happiness and is the mainstay to several village charities who would most probably collapse without his energy and twinkling good humour, experience and expertise. I hope that I have his vitality and commitment to make such a sustained difference to my community when I reach my three score and ten. Even if you don't get through to be a torchbearer, Mike, on behalf of Earls Barton, thank you for all you do.
