Anyone can nominate someone for a UK Honour through the ‘open access’ system and awards are given to people from all walks of life.

The final decision as to who receives an honour is first decided by an Honours Committee and their recommendations go to the Prime Minister and finally to HM The King for approval. The process can take up to 18 months with recipients of honours announced in HM The King’s New Year’s Honours List and Birthday Honours List.

Nomination forms and advice on how to complete them are available through the Cumbria Lieutenancy website. Honours nominations | Cumbria Lieutenancy

HM Lord-Lieutenant of Cumbria, Mr Alexander Scott congratulates all the award winners:

“It is a very proud moment for our county that so many Cumbrian residents have been recognised for their contributions to our communities. To be awarded an Honour is a huge achievement and I would like to congratulate them all.

“I would encourage people to think about someone that they know who always goes the extra mile for others and who has made an outstanding contribution to their community or to their area of work over the years. Anyone can nominate a person for an honour, and I am very keen for people who have given exceptional service to receive the recognition they deserve.”
