The Foreign and Commonwealth Office invites nominations for the 2017 Queen’s New Year Honours List.

Persons wishing to submit nominations for the 2017 New Year Honours are reminded that the overriding principle is that Honours are awarded on merit for exceptional achievement, or any service recently carried out over and above what normally is expected. Where possible, nominations should place emphasis on voluntary services.

It should also be noted that age is not a factor in awarding Honours and younger members of the community who have made an outstanding contribution or have given exceptional service, should not be overlooked.

It is important that nominations are kept confidential and that nominees are not made aware that they are being proposed for award of an Honour.

 Nomination forms are available from Corporate Services at the Castle and can also be requested electronically from Miss Linda Benjamin, via email:

 Completed forms should be returned in a sealed envelope, marked Confidential, to the Executive Secretary, Honours Committee, by Wednesday 4 May 2016.
