Four islanders named in King's Birthday Honours List

Four Guernsey residents have been recognised for their contributions to Bailiwick life.

Jurat David Robilliard has been made an MBE for services to the Church, after being a member of the Deanery Synod for 52 years.

He was elected Jurat in 2017 and has also been the Principal Officer of the States Assembly, Her Majesty’s Deputy Greffier, Secretary to the Bailiff of Guernsey.

He says the reward is an unexpected honour.

"It certainly doesn't feel like I have been doing all this for so long, I almost can't believe it.

But I enjoy doing it, and I do think there is great value in public service".

Two islanders have been awarded British Empire Medals (BEMs).

Marguerite Talmage is recognised for her services to the community.

She has been volunteering across many fields for 50 years and recently played a huge part in the redevelopment of Guernsey’s Rural Occupational Workshop - becoming lead fundraiser and securing  £2 million for GROW's new Coutanchez site.

Jo Reeve will also receives a BEM for his service to Guernsey's government.

As Director of International Relations and Constitutional Affairs Mr Reeve has worked to secure the best outcome for the island in the wake of major international changes such as the Brexit ‘yes’ vote and the global Covid pandemic.

He also led negotiations on behalf of Guernsey with the UK and European Commission to establish a fisheries licensing scheme to safeguard the local industry.

Guernsey's Chief Ambulance Officer Mark Mapp receives the King's Ambulance Service Medal, after 26 years in the emergency services.
