Local people named on Queen's birthday honours list

A Hospice spokesperson added "The Queen's Birthday Honours List recognises the achievements of a wide range of extraordinary people and the organisation wishes to extend honest congratulations to our CEO, Liz Cuddy on this outstanding accolade".

The list, which celebrates over a thousand extraordinary people across the United Kingdom, also recognised 103-year-old Rosemary Powell - the oldest recipient - with an MBE for her charitable service, having spent over 97 years volunteering for the Royal British Legion.

In total, 1,057 people have received an award with 10% of the successful candidates come from a BAME background. "We can do better than this and we will continue to strive to do better", Stone added.

"Deeply touched to receive this honour from the nation that welcomed me as a small foreign boy", the Japan-born writer said of the news.

Riverina residents have once again been well represented on this year's Queen's Birthday Honours List.

Meantime Wagga's Robert Knight, Narrandera's Jennifer Clarke, and Temora's Arthur Bradley were awarded Order of Australia Medals for their services to the community.

Former Second World War nurse Rosemary Powell, who at 103 is the oldest on the list, is made an MBE for voluntary service to the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal, having spent 97 years collecting for the charity. The award is in recognition of her work in promoting the UK Beauty industry, mentoring female entrepreneurs and charitable work within the sector.

Governor-General Sir Peter Cosgrove has led a push in recent years to encourage people to nominate more women for awards like the Queen's Birthday Honours and Australia Day awards in an attempt to end the domination of men on the lists.

West Berkshire Councillor Virginia von Celsing (Con, Compton) was also appointed an MBE for public and political service.
