Mayor urges people to nominate community heroes

The Mayor of Dudley is asking people to nominate unsung community heroes from across the borough for a special award from the Queen.

The Mayor is asking people to nominate those who go above and beyond in their communities in the Queen’s honours.

The awards stipulate nominations must be those who have made achievements in public life or committed themselves to serving and helping Britain.

The borough has a long history of previous recipients of Queen’s honours.

Last year Alan Cutler, from Wordsley, was awarded the MBE, For voluntary service to Geological Conservation particularly in the Black Country. Camilla Phillips, from Halesowen, was also awarded the MBE, for services to the community through The Hope Centre in Halesowen.

In 2016 Andrew Morris, from Kingswinford was named MBE, for services to special education while Jean Fletcher, from Stourbridge, was awarded a British Empire Medal for services to nursing care. Councillor Dave Tyler, Mayor of Dudley, said:

“There are some incredible people in this borough who make our communities tick. Without their hard work and dedication this borough would simply not function as well as it does.

“I urge people to take the time to nominate those incredible individuals and highlight nationally the excellent work that goes on in this borough.”

People receive honours for a range of work including long-term voluntary service, innovation and entrepreneurship, achievements, improving life for people less able to help themselves and displaying moral courage.

Nominations are given in a number of categories including community, voluntary and local services, arts and media, health, sport, education, science and technology, business and the economy and civil or political service.
