Margot James MP congratulated the President of Stourbridge Conservative Association, Margaret Fraser on her MBE for political service, Civil Servant Derek Alldritt on his MBE for public service and fireman Rudy Parkes on his MBE for national and international fundraising and voluntary work.
Margot said "In the five years I have been privileged to know Margaret Fraser she has always demonstrated such loyalty and dedication in her work which has spanned decades of service. I know she will feel that this award also recognises the tireless work carried out by her late husband John Fraser for the Rotary Club and the Conservative Party. Margaret and John were a wonderful team and it is so much to her credit that Margaret has carried on their good work despite health problems and the loss of John. she is appreciated and admired by all who know her and the MBE is a fitting tribute."
Margot continued "I was very impressed to read about the huge amount of fundraising and rescue work done both internationally and at home by Mr Parkes, and the outstanding work, always going the extra mile, carried out by Mr Alldritt which is a reminder of the valuable and often unsung work undertaken by our civil service at all levels. I extend my warmest congratulations to both men ".
