Nominating someone for an honour
The honours system recognises people who’ve made great achievements in public life and people who’ve committed themselves to serving Britain. They will usually have made life better for other people or been outstanding at what they do. Across Devon there are very many people from all walks of life who meet those criteria; my challenge to you is to ask you to nominate someone you know who does.
Each year Her Majesty The Queen makes awards to both groups and businesses.
These awards are the Queens Award for Voluntary Service for the voluntary groups which excel in the field in which they work and The Queens Award for Enterprise for businesses.
Royal Visits to Devon
In Devon we are lucky enough to host members of the Royal Family on visits to the County, several times throughout each year.
These visits bring attention to great things which are happening in the County and give thanks and encouragement to all involved.
It is wonderful to see people’s faces light up when they are involved in Royal visit.
Royal Garden Parties
Each year Her Majesty holds 3 garden parties at Buckingham Palace and as her representative in the County the Lord-Lieutenant is given an allocation of 50 deserving guests and their companion.
Nominations are sent in from around the County for those who go over and above to help other people and this is where you can put forward your nomination.

Each year, thousands of birthday and wedding anniversary cards are sent on behalf of The Queen to people celebrating significant birthdays and wedding anniversaries.
The delivery of these messages is arranged by the Anniversaries Office at Buckingham Palace, continuing a tradition which goes back to 1917.
