Queen's honours


Nominating someone for an honour is easier than you think.

Honours, such as a CBE, OBE and MBE are a distinctive way of acknowledging someone’s impact on UK life. They are a unique form of national recognition for people who have made a significant contribution and whose community or organisation thinks that they are doing something extraordinary.

Case studies:

Mr Mark Riddell MBE

Social Worker, Care Leaving Services, Trafford Local Authority. For services to children.

Mrs Rita Jones BEM

Secretary, the Trees Estate Residents’ Association. For services to the community in Stretford, Greater Manchester.

Mr Rob Mcloughlin OBE

Broadcaster, producer, executive. For services to Broadcasting in the North West.

Mr John Howe OBE

For services to Diabetes UK and the community in Trafford, Manchester.

Jean Oglesby CBE

Co-founder of the Oglesby Charitable Trust and member of the Board of the Royal Exchange Theatre, Manchester.

If you know someone who:

  • Has made a real impact in the Trafford community,
  • Gained the respect of their peers,
  • Changed their community for the better,
  • Demonstrated innovation, or
  • Brought distinction to British life and enhanced its reputation through their work

Then the Trafford Council Honours Sub-Committee wants to hear about it.
