Nominations sought for next year’s royal gongs

| 19/04/2010

(CNS): The governors office said today that the governor is now inviting members of the public to submit nominations for the Queen’s New Year Honours 2011. Nominations must be received by Friday, 7 May for what will be the first royal gongs awarded during Duncan Taylor’s watch. As is customary the final recommendations for OBEs and MBEs are considered in the United Kingdom but potential Certificate and Badge of Honour awardees are considered locally.

Nominations must be supported by a persuasive account of the outstanding or innovative or self-sacrificing services and achievements of the nominee, whether paid or unpaid, in one field or several, and what has raised them above those of others performing similar services and the public is reminded that long service in itself is not enough.

Honours nomination forms can be requested by e-mail from Copies can also be found on the Governor’s Office website (

The office is requesting that nominators 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.

For any further information please contact Mandy Heffield at the Governor’s Office on 244-2401.
