New Year’s honours for Islington

Congratulations to the Islington residents who’ve been recognised in the New Year’s Honours.

Meral Ece gets a well-deserved OBE for her long years as a local councillor in both Islington and Hackney, her work helping people get the best out of health services and her leadership in the Turkish community.

Harley Sherlock receives the MBE for his services to Islington. He’s a distinguished architect, planning advocate and transport campaigner, and pillar of the Islington Society, and an extremely kind and constantly cheerful person.

And David Ryan, the engine of the Times Boxing Club, also gets the MBE. David is totally dedicated to the work of the Club which helps so many young people. It’s good to see him getting some recognition in return.
