The MBE is awarded for an outstanding achievement or service to the community. This will have had a long-term, significant impact and stand out as an example to others.

The BEM is awarded for a ‘hands-on’ service to the local community. This could be a charitable or voluntary activity, or innovative work that has made a significant difference.

Her Majesty’s Lord-Lieutenant of Dyfed, Miss Sara Edwards said: “It is a very great pleasure to present these MBE and BEM medals to such worthy and deserving recipients in our community. They are truly an inspiration to us all.”
