One of our members, Lynda Colston, has been awarded an MBE in the New Year’s Honours list.
Lynda has worked at the DWP since 1973 and has been instrumental in the design of mental health training being delivered to around 40,000 staff.
Lynda said: “It was a really nice feeling to find out the work I have been involved with has been recognised at such a high level.
“I am mindful of the many people at DWP who have helped bring this learning to so many people across the department in their work to help customers.”
But in spite of her demanding job involving a lot of travel, she has played a large part in her local church, running a fortnightly Ladies’ Group.
We add our congratulations to the many messages she has received from friends and colleagues.
