VILLAGE TRUST AWARDED MBE

The Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service has been given to Honley Village
Community Trust

The Queen's Award for Voluntary Service is the highest award given to local volunteer groups across the UK to recognise outstanding work done in their own communities. It is the equivalent of an MBE for volunteer groups.

Trust Chairman Ian Blagborough and committee member Marcia Murray were chosen to represent the Village Trust at a Garden Party held at Buckingham Palace on Tuesday May 23rd. The award was officially announced in The London Gazette on June 2nd.2017

Ian Blagborough says “This award is given to all those volunteers past and present, who turn out to help to make Honley a great place to live; whether it’s working on Magdale Fields and footpaths, or the Mag dam and waterways. Also those who deliver the Honley Flyer four times a year and those who help at Trust events like the Craft Fair. It also includes those who become members of the Trust and help maintain it by paying their subscription once a year! You all have played a part and share in this group MBE. Well done and congratulations.”

The QAVS gives us the right to use the Queen’s Award official logo on our stationary. (see above). An English Crystal with the official logo and a citation about the work of the Trust inscribed on it, will be presented locally by the Queen's representative at a later date.
