WE’D like to offer our congratulations to Coun Tom Hargreaves and Kath Boullen after they were both awarded MBEs in the Queen’s birthday honours list.

Coun Hargreaves, a former mayor of St Helens, has been a fixture in local politics for nearly 30 years, while Kath has worked for St Helens Chamber for 22 years - acting as the award-winning organisation’s chief executive since 1998.

Both thoroughly deserve their awards, and it’s fantastic to see two of the people who help make St Helens tick honoured in this way.
