Isle of Wight Lord-Lieutenant Awards 2023

On Tuesday 3rd October we held our Lord-Lieutenant awards for the Isle of Wight. 

Alongside the presentation of a Meritorious Service Certificate, Best Reservist Award, Cadet Forces’ Medal and appointment of 3 Lord-Lieutenant Cadets, the Lord-Lieutenant also presented several State Awards. These included 2 British Empire Medals and other community focused awards including Hampshire Constabulary Exemplary Service Awards and HMP Long Service Awards.

A special mention must also go to Elizabeth Bilk, who was awarded the Royal British Legion Long Service Bar for an outstanding 70 years fundraising for the RBL.

Congratulations to all recipients! We were delighted to be able to recognise your achievements
