County Hall in Preston will host a prestigious Honours Ceremony on Friday 13 April.

Three Recipients from Lancashire will receive a BEM (Medallist of the Order of the British Empire). The BEM rewards an achievement or contribution of a very ‘hands-on’ service to the community in a local geographical area.

The Investiture will be attended by Her Majesty’s Lord-Lieutenant of Lancashire, The Lord Shuttleworth KG KCVO, who will be making the presentations, which were announced in The Queen’s New Year Honours List.

Lord Shuttleworth said: “Once more, I am honoured to be presenting British Empire Medals on behalf of Her Majesty The Queen to residents of Lancashire. It is a privilege to make these presentations and to meet the recipients.”

The recipients will be:

*Mrs Anita Castellina from Thornton Cleveleys. For services to the community in Cannock.

*Mrs Kathryn Heyworth from Burnley. For services to the community in Burnley.

*Mrs Gail Humphreys from Preston. For services to Troubled Families in Liverpool.

About the British Empire Medal (BEM):

The BEM rewards an achievement or contribution of a ‘hands-on’ service to the community in a local geographical area.

This might take the form of sustained commitment in support of local charitable and/or voluntary activity, or innovative work that has delivered real impact.

At all levels, awards illuminate areas of dedicated service which merit public recognition.
