The Lord Lieutenant, said: “I was very pleased to have made the presentation to Pett Older People’s Project on behalf of Her Majesty The Queen. The award recognises the
hard work of all the volunteers at POPP and the work they do to ensure that every member feels welcomed and valued. The members receive the best possible service, including lunch and lots of integrated social and fun activities. The Queen’s Award is a very special award for community service and the highest honour a voluntary organisation can receive. It is equivalent to a group MBE.”
