30 Sep Deputy Lieutenants Commissions for Shropshire 2020/21
Burwarton House was the perfect setting for the lord-lieutenant of Shropshire, Anna Turner, to present the newly appointed Deputy-Lieutenants with their commissions. It was a wonderful evening and the first time the Lord-Lieutenant and her Deputies both retired and current had been together for many months.
The lord-lieutenant thanked our hosts Viscount and Viscountess Boyne for allowing us to use their house and to all her Deputies for everything they do to support her.
The newly commissioned Deputy-Lieutenants were:
Mrs Claire Brentnall
Mrs Claire Crackett
Dr Josh Dixey
Mrs Katherine Garnier
Miss Gill Hamer
Air Vice-Marshal Warren James CBE
Mr Rupert Kenyon-Slaney
Mrs Veronica Lillis
Mr Tullis Matson
Mrs Nichola Peers
Mr Martin Stevens
Sir Edward Tate Bt
Mrs Amanda Thorn MBE
Martin Yates from Albrighton also received his MBE for his work teaching aircraft engineers and was officially recognised for services to the WorldSkills Competition. He had opted to receive the honour in his home county rather than travelling to Buckingham Palace.
