A Reader at St Helen's church, Solihull Parish, has been awarded an MBE. Beryl Moppett was named in the Queen's Birthday honours list for services to the community; from working locally with the homeless and unemployed to rebuilding schools in Rwanda.
About receiving the award, she said: "When I received the letter it came as a shock and was hard to believe – very much the "Why me?" question! I'm not sure who thinks I deserve this - I shall never know fully who my supporters were."
