ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI- Two Virgin Islanders have been awarded Honours in the Queen’s 2018 New Year Honours List.

Mrs Lynden Smith has been awarded a MBE for services to developing education programmes and advocating literacy in the [British] Virgin Islands and Mrs Monica Allen has been awarded a BEM for services to the community in the [British] Virgin Islands.

Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II made the appointments as part of her New Year Honours List. The Queen’s New Year Honours List recognises individuals for outstanding achievement and service across the UK and the Overseas Territories.
