Nick Stevens is to receive a Badge of Honour for the work he does for St Helena, and especially the island’s young people.

As head of the New Horizons youth project in Jamestown he has overseen the organisation of St Helena Day celebrations for the past six years, raising thousands of pounds.

He and his team also organise group activity holidays on Ascension for young Saints, often giving them their first experience of leaving St Helena. Another trip is due to take place in 2013.

Nick gave his reaction on Facebook, saying he was “not sure what capacity I am receiving this for.”

The Badge of Honour and certificate is due to be presented at the Queen’s Birthday Garden Party at Plantation House on Saturday.

The award recognises loyal service by public servants, or “loyal and meritorious conduct that has provided exceptional benefit to the people of St Helena.”

The Certificate and Badge of Honour date back to 1957 but were not given on a regular basis until 2010, when Governor Andrew Gurr presented awards to Ann Sim, Desmond Wade and Robert Robertson.

Awards are also given for bravery.
