Islanders given New Year Honours
Medals
MBEs, CBEs and OBEs have been awarded to islander residents
Eight Channel Islanders have been recognised by the Queen in the New Year Honour's List.

Among them are a leading broadcaster, a financial regulator, a former bandmaster and a potter.

Alan Whicker, the writer and broadcaster, who lives in Trinity in Jersey, has been given the CBE for his services to broadcasting.

Whilst Peter Arnold from Alderney is to be presented with the MBE for services to heritage in the island.

Community service

St Peter resident Colin Powell, chairman of the Jersey Financial Services Commission, is given the CBE for his contribution to the financial regulation industry in the island. He has already received an OBE from the Queen.

An MBE has been awarded to Margaret Holley, the Head of the Brig Y Don Children's Home in St Clement, and the same award is given to Frederick Sergeant, from St Brelade, for his services to the Law Courts in Jersey.

Peter Durham Waite, the former bandmaster of the Band of the Island of Jersey is made an MBE.

Edith Franklin from St Clement also receives an MBE for her community service, including work with the Samaritans and the Citizen's Advice Bureau.

Alderney potter

Two Bailiwick residents have been rewarded in the Queen's New Year's Honours list.

John Langlois has been awarded the OBE for his services to Guernsey.

The former deputy has been an advocate in the island since 1971.

He stepped down from the States of Guernsey this year after heading committees for horticulture, housing, civil defence.

Peter Arnold is currently the administrator of the Alderney Museum and has seen it nominated for two awards.

He is also a long serving member of the Alderney Society and the island's only potter. He started at the pottery in 1961 and although it closed in 2000 due to lack of visitors, it later reopened.
