Congratulations To Myra Weir BEM



Congratulations to former Labour councillor Myra Weir for being awarded the British Empire Medal in the New Year’s Honours List. Myra is one of those people whose devotion to her community didn’t end after she stopped being  a district councillor.


As the Daily Telegraph reports:

Mrs Myra Anne Weir. For services to the Rochford Day Centre and to the community in Rochford and Hawkwell, Essex. (Hawkwell, Essex)

Myra was a Labour councillor for Hawkwell West until 2003, serving on the council alongside her husband, Jock.  They are both still  members of Hawkwell Parish Council.

    Yes, Congratulations to Myra.

    Myra is one of the hardest working people anyone is likely to meet. She deserves this although she would never have sought after it.

  3. Julian Ware-Lane

    Jock? I have always called Mr Weir ‘David’!

    Anyway, richly deserved.
