Lord Lieutenant Cox said: “Congratulations to Christine Beech, Martin Harrison and Jane Muers on their outstanding achievements. Their hard work and dedication in making their local community a better place is inspiring. It’s wonderful to see their efforts recognised in this way.

“We are always on the lookout for individuals who are doing extraordinary work in the county and may be eligible for national recognition. If you know any unsung heroes who have made significant achievements in public life, please consider nominating them for an honour or award so that they too can receive the recognition they deserve.”
