Poet Kate Clanchy: I hope MBE honours creativity in classroom

Of the total number recognised in the Queen's Birthday Honours list this year, 210 have been made an OBE, 392 an MBE, and 318 awarded a BEM.

Professor Suzanne Chambers from Griffith University's Menzies Health Institute Queensland, has been acknowledged for her work on how to best support people dealing with cancer.

Honoured with a British Empire Medal were John Metcalfe, from Mickleton, for services to the village; and Cathleen Anne Milwood, of Welford-on-Avon, for services to Stratford-upon-Avon. She became Founder Member of the CEW in 1992, and president in 1995, a role she has held ever since.

"When I opened the letter, the feeling was incredible. It's been a great ride and one I hope goes on for quite a bit longer", he said.

World heavyweight champion boxer Anthony Joshua is made an OBE for services to sport, while 20-year-old alpine skier Menna Fitzpatrick, Britain's most successful winter paralympian, is the youngest on this year's list, picking up an MBE for services to Paralympic winter Olympic sport. She has never been far from the spotlight, always willing to speak her mind and take a stand to highlight issues close to her heart. Liz, a board member of Radius Housing received the award for services to the social and affordable housing sector in NI.

"The only sadness", she said was "that our wonderful mother died a few weeks ago and so she won't be able to see us get our awards - but I'm sure she's looking down and smiling with characteristic, motherly pride!"

She said athletes could not succeed without the help of family and she wanted to thank the mums and dads who did the hard yards for their kids.

Fraser maintains an active lifestyle on the Sunshine Coast, riding bikes and her jet ski, and says she loves spending time with grandson Jackson, 14.

"It's at the top because I feel like this is something completely different", he said.
