Chuffed I can understand, but the embarrassment is completely inappropriate. Oh, wait, you're English. I've clearly spent too long in America.

Toast AND biscuits?

While that is true, I think the general feeling will be that your work with the BBC to ensure that Python is a programming choice for their new educational device plus your leadership role in the PyCon UK team plus makes you stand out from the crowd. The PSF initiated the Community Service Awards (not an easy development at the time, by the way) precisely to give public recognition to outstanding efforts on Python's behalf, so despite your embarrassment you truly are a worthy recipient.
