Its royal gong time, as governor invites nominees

| 13/10/2011

(CNS): The public is being invited to submit their nominations for next year’s royal birthday gongs. Duncan Taylor is asking people submit names and details for the Queen’s Birthday Honours 2012. Nominations must be received by Thursday, 3 November and, as ever, final recommendations for OBEs and MBEs are considered in the United Kingdom and the Certificate and Badge of Honour are considered here in Cayman. Officials said long service is not enough to get one of the royal medals and nominations must be supported by a “persuasive account of the outstanding or innovative or self-sacrificing services and achievements … paid or unpaid, in one field or several, and what has raised them above those of others performing similar services.”

Honours Nomination Forms can be requested by e-mail from Copies can also be found on the Governor’s Office website. Please make every effort to fully complete all the relevant sections. Once completed, the forms should be submitted, under confidential cover, to the Governor’s Office. While all recommendations will be acknowledged, the Governor’s Office cannot enter into correspondence about the action taken on them.
