Persons wishing to recognise members of the Cayman Islands community for notable contributions to public life have less than three weeks left to submit nominations for the Queen’s New Year’s Honours 2022.
Nomination forms and details of how to prepare them are available from www.gov.uk/honours. The completed forms must be received by the Governor’s Office no later than Monday, 22 March 2021.
His Excellency the Governor, Martyn Roper, explains that successful nominees have traditionally made life better for other people, or are outstanding at what they do.
“I urge anyone submitting a nomination to take the time to tell the story of the person they are putting forward, highlighting what makes them stand out from other people performing similar services”, Mr Roper said. He added that the achievement or service being recognised might be paid or unpaid, in one field or in several.
Those who have already received Queen’s Honours, he noted, remain eligible for nomination to a higher honour.
The Governor will review all nominations before recommending candidates to the Royal, Ceremonial and Honours Unit in the Foreign and Commonwealth Office in London. Final recommendations for honours in The Queen’s List are considered in the United Kingdom, while recommendations for the Certificate and Badge of Honour are considered locally.
While all recommendations will be acknowledged, the Governor’s Office cannot enter into correspondence about the action taken on them.
Members of the public are further reminded that Queen’s Honours are awarded twice a year and the deadline for the Queen’s Birthday Honours 2022 is 15 September 2021.
