Her Majesty's Lord-
Lieutenant of Cheshire

Welcome to the
Lord Lieutenant of Cheshire’s website

David Briggs, M.B.E., K.St.J.

As Lord-Lieutenant my duties range from arranging Royal visits to the County to presenting honours and awards on behalf of Her Majesty. I am Chairman of the Advisory Committee on Justices of the Peace and Honorary Colonel of the Cheshire Army Cadets. I also encourage good nominations for honour, both personal and for The Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service and for The Queen’s Award for Enterprise.

In addition, I am involved with a large number of local charities and I am keen to act as a bridge between the commercial and professional world and the voluntary sector. I help Cheshire charities in any way that I can.

Above all, I hope to be an Ambassador for all that is good in the County.

How we can help you

Nominating someone for a National Honour or for an invitation to a Buckingham Palace Garden Party is not difficult.

We can give advice and guidance if you need it.

We can also advise on how to request a Royal visit or a 100th birthday or 60th wedding anniversary message.

Royal visits to Cheshire

A visit by a member of the Royal Family is a great way to celebrate achievement and excellence in Cheshire.

We can advise on how to request and plan for such a visit.

Queens Awards

Each year Her Majesty The Queen makes awards to outstanding groups of volunteers who have made a real difference within their communities, and also to businesses with an outstanding track-record particularly in international trade or in innovation.

Royal Garden Parties

Her Majesty The Queen hosts garden parties each year at Buckingham Palace for those who do special things to help others.

The Lord-Lieutenant is given an allocation of a limited number of places for people from Cheshire and welcomes nominations of deserving people from around the county.
