Fran OborskiWyre Forest District Council has congratulated one of its members on the award of the MBE in the Queen’s Birthday Honours list.

Councillor Fran Oborski (pictured right) has received an MBE honour in recognition of her service in the Wyre Forest district.

Councillor Chris Rogers, Chairman of Wyre Forest District Council, said:

“I know that present and former colleagues of Councillor Fran Oborski would want to join me in extending hearty congratulations to her on the well-deserved award of the MBE by Her Majesty The Queen.

“Councillor Oborski has an unmatched record of dedicated political and public service to Kidderminster and the district of Wyre Forest. Uniquely, she has served continuously as a member of Wyre Forest District Council since the first elections in 1973. Her dedication to her work as a councillor is legendary, and she remains an outstanding representative and advocate for her constituents.

“Her contribution was recognised locally by her appointment as Mayor of Kidderminster for 1984/5 and, in her fortieth year as a district councillor, as Chairman of Wyre Forest District Council for 2013/14 when she raised a record amount of over £6,000 for her nominated charities. It is very pleasing to see that Fran’s contribution over four decades has been recognised by Her Majesty.”
