Three locals receive New Year's honours

Three Isle of Man residents will receive awards as part of The Queen's New Year's Honours List.

Olga Gray receives an MBE for her work in the community, which includes raising over £1.5m for Breakthough Breast Cancer Isle of Man.

Mrs Gray has also worked as a volunteer news reader for the Manx Blind Welfare Society for 30 years.

Chairman of the Southern 100 Motorcycle Club Phil Taubman is also made an MBE for his services to motorsport.

He was part of the original organising committee for the races in 1955, and has served as clerk of the course for the Manx Grand Prix.

Meanwhile, Bill Dale of the Beach Buddies charity is awarded the British Empire Medal for services to the Manx marine environment, having started cleaning the Island's beaches 10 years ago.
