Cornwall's community champions are getting the royal seal of approval.

The Queen's birthday honours list is out and three people from the Duchy feature.

Among those recognised are Philip Barnett from St Ives. The 51 year old has been Director of Kidz R Us which he set up in 1993. Since its creation more than 1,500 young people have been involved, helping raise money for charity.

Over the past 19 years, Kidz has staged over 50 musical shows in St Ives and he has taken the Kidz cast to perform at West End theatres and the Royal Albert Hall.

He is given the British Empire Medal in the new list. He told Pirate FM, "It's just a thrill and a dream come true. I've spent the last eighteen years working forty to sixty hours a week as a volunteer. When you do this kind of work you don't do it for any kind of reward but, of course, it is nice to be recognised."

Gerald Chin-Quee also gets the BEM for his voluntary and community work in Falmouth. Stretching over twenty years it includes working at the town's youth club and representing it as a councillor.

Eighty-five year old Norman Pampling from Liskeard is made an MBE recognising his work at the town's Royal British Legion. He joined in 1953 and still works as its president. His work has raised many thousands of pounds for the Poppy Appeal.

Other being honoured in the Ducy include:

Christopher Gregory, Land Steward, Isles of Scilly, Duchy of Cornwall.

Nigel Ashcroft, Project director, Next Generation Broadband Cornwall, for services to economic regeneration in Cornwall.

Alan Brown, Special Constabulary chief Officer, Devon and Cornwall Constabulary.

John Culver, for services to the community in St. Ives.

Philip Dingle, Police Patrol Officer, Devon and Cornwall Constabulary, for services to policing.

Janice Sadler, founder, Pain Support Charity, Cornwall, for services to pain management.

Arthur Gutteridge, for voluntary service to the Royal Naval Association.

Philip Hitchens, for services to the community in Penzance.

David Keast, for services to the Davidstow Moor RAF Memorial Museum.

Raymond Shaddick, for services to the community and to charity in Bude.
