Helston community worker made an MBE

First published in Cornwall

A man who has been at the heart of the community in Helston and the Lizard Peninsula for the last decade has been made an MBE in the Queen’s Birthday Honours.

With such an active role in various organisations, it is fitting that Julian Rand should be awarded the honour for services to the communities in Mawgan and Helston.

He is perhaps best known for his role with the South Kerrier Alliance, of which he was chairman for many years.

In the past he has also been vice chairman of Mawgan Parish Council, and is still chair of the West Cornwall Local Action Group, treasurer of the Lizard Tourism Association and a governor of Garras and St Martin primary schools.

Mr Rand and his wife Ali were founding governors of the Garras Owlets Pre-school and still retain an active role.

Elsewhere in Cornwall, Margaret Byrne was also made an MBE for services to education and the community in Mousehole and Paul through her role as chair of the governors of Mousehole Primary School, while Raymond Blaker was awarded a British Empire Medal for services to charity and the community in Penzance.

I do not know the gentleman, but would be interested to know as to why telstars comment has been thumbed down after I thumbed both comments up. Nobody ever asks to win an award, I therefore find it strange that anyone should object to nice comments being left.

Personally I think the thumbs up/thumbs down should be abandoned by the Packet as I think it serves no useful purpose, and I have stopped using the facility weeks ago
Once again, my congratulations go the Mr Rand

I agree he sounds like he deserves his award, but isnt there just as many other people in the communities that do as much, maybe in different ways, that goes unrecognised. After all most people of these people do things because choose to and enjoy them. I reckon there's just as many people in Helston that do just as much or more.

The honours system recognises people who have made achievements in public life and committed themselves to serving and helping Britain

Anyone can nominate someone for an honour, so if it concerns you John, then some of the other deserving people you know can be proposed for an honour in the same way that Mr Rand was.
