Cllr Rob Waltham, Leader of North Lincolnshire has been awarded an MBE in the Queen's Birthday Honours list. Cllr Waltham received this honour on 14 November for his services to local government.
Cllr Rob Waltham, Leader of North Lincolnshire Council, said:
“It was a significant day and I am grateful to have received my MBE. It is not just about me though, it is for everybody. North Lincolnshire is part of a team and not a lot of people get applauded or acknowledged.
“The other context is there are a lot of people who work hard on a daily basis and haven’t been lucky enough to get an honour, who take risks to keep us all safe or work long-hour shifts.
“I am lucky that I am in a profession where I have been recognised but it is important to recognise those who never get three letters after their name.”
