Every year the Queen awards honours to nominated members of the United Kingdom in recognition for their achievements or services. If you haven’t heard of this before you can learn more about the new years honours process here. Nearly 1000 people received honours on 4 January 2012 and you can see the variety of good work recognised on the full honours list. These include philanthropists, members of parliament, famous faces, community heroes, those working in education, health, industry, science, arts, media and sport.
