by Michael Ford last modified 05 Jan, 2022 07:19 PM

Joy Tubbs, Salisbury Diocese Director of Education has been honoured with an MBE in the New Year Honours for services to education.

Joy’s career began in the classroom, has included school and local authority leadership and advisory work for the Department for Education. Joy said,

“It is really humbling to be awarded in this way; the greatest honour though is to serve the incredible school and academy trust leaders of our diocese who so selflessly support children and young people every single day.”

Bishop Karen, Acting Bishop of Salisbury, writes ‘I am delighted that Joy’s contribution to education has been recognised in the New Year honours. Through Joy’s leadership our Education Department has gone from strength to strength contributing not only to the development of our own work with church schools, but far beyond into the region and nationally. Joy’s faith, dedication to young people and commitment is second to none and this honour is so well deserved. Congratulations Joy’.

The Venerable Antony MacRow-Wood, Archdeacon of Dorset, writes 'Joy is an outstanding Diocesan Director of Education. I am delighted she has been honoured for her lifelong dedication to ensuring our children and young people are given the best possible education to equip them for life.'

Further to this Martyn Underhill, Lay Canon and former Dorset Police and Crime Commissioner has also been awarded an MBE for his work in the field of Mental Health. Martyn has recently been one of our diocesan representatives on the Crown Nominations Commission. Bishop Karen writes, ‘we are grateful for all that Martyn contributes to the life of the diocese as a Lay Canon of Salisbury Cathedral, and more recently as a diocesan representative of the Crown Nominations Commission and offer him our congratulations on being awarded an MBE in the New Years Honours’.
