New Year Honours List 2021 - Ned Nuzum BEM


Lifeboat Operations Manager – Ned Nuzum 

What a way to begin the New Year!! 

Announced today New Years Eve, our station LOM (Volunteer Lifeboat Operations Manager) Ned Nuzum has been awarded the British Empire Medal by Her Majesty the Queen in the New Year Honours list of 2021.

An RNLI spokesperson described Ned as being at the heart of the local community, working tirelessly to promote the RNLI at every opportunity” and all of us at The Lizard Station know this to be very true!  Ned was first told about his award at the beginning of December and has had to keep it a closely guarded secret since then,  he is one of  only six RNLI volunteers to be mentioned in the 2021 New Year Honours list.

All of us at The Lizard Lifeboat Station would like to offer our sincere congratulations to the RNLI volunteer members who have been honoured in this way  – but most especially to you Ned Nuzum BEM. 

Congratulations Ned, so very well deserved and we couldn’t be prouder of you ……
