Congratulations to Scott Dickinson who has been awarded the MBE for his services to Northumberland Communities.

Scott is Leader of Northumberland Labour group and is county councillor for Druridge Bay.

Recognition was given for his work for the residents of Northumberland in his roles with charities, Northumbria NHS, and Northumberland County Council.

Scott is managing director of Hadston House, and praise was given for their work supporting vulnerable people during the pandemic.

Scott was awarded his MBE in March, by the Princess Royal at Buckingham Palace. He told The Ambler: “It was a tremendous honour and an overwhelming experience to be recognised for the work I do. Raising the profile of our area and Northumberland can only be beneficial for all.

“I am proud of all we do and achieve together for the people of Northumberland. I was also delighted that my parents and partner could experience the day with me. Now I’m back the work continues, and the change will come that’s so desperately needed for our communities.”

Scott grew up in Broomhill and attended Coquet High School, where he became the first Chair of the School Council. He later went on to become Chair of Governors, taking the school out of special measures, replacing the leadership team, and overseeing the formation of James Calvert Spence College.
