New Years Honours List

I am humbled and appreciative to have been awarded the MBE in this year's New Year Honours list.

And very impressed that so many of my friends picked up the fact so quickly!

Thank you to all those who have sent such kind messages of congratulations.

There were twelve awards in this year's New Year's Honours list for Cumbria, counting the award of Companion of Honour status to Lord (Melvin) Bragg of Wigton. Seven residents of Cumbria were awarded the MBE and four the British Empire Medal (BEM).

Here is a link to a piece in Cumbria Crack with a statement from the Lord Lieutenant of Cumbria about the awards made in the County which also explains the honours nomination process.
