Congratulations Lady Bloomfield!
A massive congratulations are in order for one of our members, Lady Elizabeth Bloomfield, who received an MBE from the Queen last week - make sure you congratulate her next time you see her in the club!
Lady Bloomfield, married to the former head of Northern Ireland’s Civil Service, Sir Ken Bloomfield, received the honour for “services to the community in Northern Ireland". According to a previous account of her work from the Prison Service Trust (of which she was formerly a director), she has variously been on the Northern Ireland Advisory Board of the Salvation Army, a member of the Northern Ireland Sports Council and a governor of Bangor Central Integrated Primary School, among a string of other achievements.
She said at the time of the announcement of the award in the summer that she was “overjoyed, but totally shocked”. She was among a raft of others receiving awards from the Queen, including Mr Bean star Rowan Atkinson, who received a CBE.
