Honours

I’ve got mixed feelings about the Honours that are handed out twice a year.  There certainly appear to be plenty of awards to go around!    I know there are some deserving recipients, but likewise I’m personally aware of a few people who have received them for doing little, if any, more than their “day job”.

Supposedly the reasons for each award are summarised in the published list, but I’m left to scratch my head when the award is stated to be no more than “for service to the community of …[name of town]”.
