Duke of Gloucester to present Basildon Mayor with British Empire Medal

Basildon Recorder: Mayor of Basildon Mo Larkin will receive the British Empire Medal Mayor of Basildon Mo Larkin will receive the British Empire Medal

AFTER dedicating more than 30 years to charity work, councillor Mo Larkin will be presented with the British Empire Medal.

HRH the Duke of Gloucester will present the BEM to the Mayor of Basildon ahead of the homecoming march of the Anglian Regiment through Basildon on November 8.

As well as being a Justice of the Peace she is also chairman of Age Matters, a trustee of Crossroads and she has also been involved in both the Youth Links and Prison No Way projects.

In total 293 people in the UK have been selected to receive the reinstated BEM as part of the Queen's 2012 birthday honours.

It was founded in 1917 but later scrapped by former Prime Minister John Major in 1993 in a bid to make the honours system "classless".

Good God , so she's got an "Other B****ers; Efforts" has she? All this from somebody who changes sides of the political fence like other people change their underwear. Somebody who cannot stand any form of criticism and bawls and shouts if somebody counters what she says - yet it's all right for her to say what she thinks about others. Yet another turncoat and hypocrite. These people make me sick. Why do people keep voting them into office? It's time for something new.. same old mindset every time keeps Basildon in the grip of self serving Tories and their cronies in Limpdums and nuLiebour. Time these chummies were wiped out of local and national government and replaced with something more in touch with real people.
