A gong for 'Lovely Jim'

Posted on 26th June 2023

Our hearty congratulations to our Vice Chair, Jim Babbington, (or should we say James Keith Babbington OBE) who was made an Officer of the Order of the British Empire in the King’s Birthday Honours List for ‘Services to the State Funeral of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth ll.’

The citation mentions Jim’s role as Vice Chair of NACO, so this is probably the first time our association has been mentioned in this context. It is wonderful to see all of Jim’s work on OLB, over so many years, so properly recognised – we are pleased for you and proud of you Jim.
