Speaking to Causeway Coast Community tonight, Ulster Unionist William McCandless said “Each year in June, honours are awarded by the Royal Family for service to the country to mark her official birthday.   Her Majesty the queen celebrates her birthday twice each year.   The day on which she was born 21/4 and her ‘official’ birthday in June.

The tradition of official birthdays started in 1748 by George II due to the generally inclement British weather.

George II birthday was in November, which was too cold for a birthday parade so he combined with the trooping of the colour and it is a tradition that was continued.

Conferring honours for investiture, the names are announced by the cabinet office twice a year  – In the New year and June and presented by members of the Royal Family.   These awards are for merit, service or bravery.    I am pleased to see that our Borough has the following well known people recognised who have contributed their time and effort to the wellbeing of the citizens of this Borough and beyond.

DUP Councillor Aaron Callan said ‘It is always great to see our local area represented within the honours list especially for work in the community. Many of those nominated have given many years of endeavour to improve the local area in different ways. We should all be proud to see local people get rewarded for their efforts and I personally send my heartily congratulations to each recipient.’
