We are delighted to announce that FRH member Crispin Truman, Chief Executive of The Churches Conservation Trust, has been awarded an OBE in the 2017 New Year honours List.
Crispin has dedicated more 13 years to protect religious heritage in UK and in Europe.
Crispin is also Chair of Governors at Stoke Newington School – a community comprehensive which provides excellent creative teaching and learning opportunities within the curriculum. After serving as a governor for four years he became chair in 2015.
What are the Orders of the British Empire?
King George V created these honours during World War I to reward services to the war effort by civilians at home and servicemen in support positions.
The ranks are Commander (CBE), Officer (OBE) and Member (MBE).
They are now awarded for prominent national or regional roles and to those making distinguished or notable contributions in their own specific areas of activity. The honour of an MBE, in particular, can be given for achievement or service in the community.
