Alongside film and television stars such as Sheila Hancock, sports people including Formula 1 driver Lewis Hamilton and musicians such as Craig David, a number of figures from the hospitality industry have been recognised.

The list aims to mark the achievements and service of extraordinary people across the United Kingdom.

UKHospitality (UKH) chief executive Kate Nicholls received an OBE in the list, for services to the sector.

Nicholls said: “While I am personally humbled and honoured to receive this recognition, I have to pay tribute to the entire UKH team for their tireless work and campaigning throughout this year, continually highlighting to Government the specific challenges our sector faces.

“This year has been one of continued despair and heartbreak for hard-pressed hospitality businesses.”

Wonderful sector

Nicholls added: “They were hit first and hit hardest by the pandemic but, despite this, there have been countless inspirational examples of leadership, resilience and collaboration, of people coming together to support their local communities during this unprecedented time, helping to feed frontline NHS and key workers, the homeless and support others in need.

“It is those values that make me proud to have represented and been part of such a wonderful sector for many years.

“Our focus now is to continue to press Government for additional financial support that will enable businesses to survive through the winter and be in a position to reopen and welcome back customers. I very much look forward to celebrating with family and friends at the first opportunity.”
