Lib Dems feature in the King’s birthday honours

Congratulations to a pair of councillors, Prue Bray and Heather Kidd, who feature in King Charles’s first birthday honours list:

Wokingham Today adds:

The deputy leader of Wokingham Borough Council, Cllr Prue Bray, is the recipient of an MBE.

The Winnersh politician has been active in politics since the 1990s. She moved to Winnersh in May 1989, and was elected to Winnersh Parish Council in May 1995, and served as the Wokingham Liberal Democrat chair between 1997 and 2000.

She was elected to Wokingham District Council in 2000, and carried on as the council became the borough council.

As if that wasn’t enough, she has stood as the Lib Dem parliamentary candidate for Wokingham in the 2005 and 2010 general elections. She was also a finalist in the 1990 series of Channel 4 game show Fifteen To One.

Shropshire Live adds:

Heather Kidd, Lib Dem Shropshire Councillor for Chirbury and Worthen, has been awarded an MBE in the King’s Birthday honours list for her service to rural communities. Heather said: “This award recognises that rural communities need a voice. I’m accepting this award not just for my self but for all those who work tirelessly, often in a voluntary capacity, for their communities across Shropshire and seldom get any recognition.”

UPDATE – A former Lib Dem Town Councillor also features in the list:

Margaret Bracey has been awarded a BEM to mark her outstanding commitment to the Royal British Legion as one of their longest serving poppy collectors. Margaret sold her first poppy for one penny in 1945 at the age of 12, and continues to volunteer for the charity almost eight decades later.

As does former Lib Dem candidate David Buxton:
