Huge congrats to Luke Francis, Head Postmaster at Bude Post Office, who announced on Facebook:
I feel honoured to tell you I’ve been recognised By Her Majesty the Queen in her birthday honours list to receive a BEM ( British Empire Medal ) for services to the Post Office, Royal British Legion,church , Kilkhampton Panto and Kilk football club – and the community that I serve . I am absolutely delighted. Thank you so much.
The full list of Honours runs to 150 pages but there is only one person from Bude I could find, which is indeed Luke.
What wonderful news. Hope it’s a big celebratory weekend, Luke.
