The Foreign & Commonwealth Office invites nominations for the 2018 Queen’s New Year’s Honours List.

Persons wishing to submit nominations for the 2018 New Year’s 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 is normally 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 an award of Honour.

Nomination forms are available from Corporate Services at the Castle, Jamestown, and can also be requested by e-mail from Mrs Carol George, via

Completed forms should be returned to the Executive Secretary, Honours Committee, in a sealed envelope, marked Confidential, by no later than Friday, 12 May 2017.
