Nichola Fletcher was presented with an MBE by Her Majesty the Queen for
'Services to the venison industry'.
On hearing that she had been awarded the MBE, Nichola said,
"When you spend your life trying to make people listen to you, it's sometimes quite a surprise when you discover that someone actually was listening after all!
I am just thrilled that my work with venison should have been so honoured and it's great to be working in an area I feel so passionately about.
There's still so much for people to learn about venison and I'm always trying to place it at the forefront of peoples' minds."
