LEADING figures from the Ham&High area in the realms of education, science, public services and the arts have been named in the Queen's Birthday Honours.
Among those on the list, published today, is South End Green resident Prof Julia Goodfellow, who was awarded a DBE for services to science.
The professor, who is vice chancellor of Kent University, has presided over biology research funding in the UK as well as working extensively with schools and communications in the sphere.
She said: "It's always a surprise -you see the letter and you think it's a joke but then you realise it's not. I'm honoured and delighted. The state of scientific research in the UK is fantastic - we are world leading. We are ahead of the US in terms of efficiency, even if they have greater volume."
