Nottinghamshire County Cricket Club Chief Executive Lisa Pursehouse has described her visit to Buckingham Palace to receive her MBE as ‘a fantastic experience’.

She travelled down to London on 16 November to receive her honour from His Royal Highness, The Prince of Wales, watched by her immediate family.

The accolade was bestowed on the 49-year-old in the Queen’s Birthday Honours List for her services to Sports, Charity Engagement and Community Development.

“I work at a great Club and with some talented and committed people.”

“To receive this MBE was a very proud moment for me, particularly as it comes as a result of work I’ve done for the Club and for working within the community of Nottinghamshire,” she said.

“It was wonderful to meet other recipients and to hear their stories and to of course meet the staff at Buckingham Palace who did everything they could to make the day a memorable occasion for us all.

“My thoughts remain the same as they did in June when I received the good news. I work at a great Club and with some talented and committed people, so it feels like it's not just for me, but for what we all do. It caps off a very special year for everyone associated with Notts.”
