Welcome to the website of the Lieutenancy of Clackmannanshire
The Lord-Lieutenant is the personal representative of her Majesty the Queen in Clackmannanshire with the responsibility to uphold the dignity of the Crown. Although historically a post with military responsibilities, the role is now largely a ceremonial one, but carries with it the duties to promote civic responsibility and community spirit and, in doing so, the Lord-Lieutenant works closely with voluntary and charitable bodies as well as local businesses. In Clackmannanshire, the Lord-Lieutenant is also responsible for the Citizen of the Year Award, run through the Lord-Lieutenant’s Golden Jubilee Trust set up by former Lord-Lieutenant, Sheena Cruickshank.
Other functions carried out by the Lord-Lieutenant are:
To arrange visits to the area of members of the Royal Family and acting as their escort during such visits.
To represent the Queen, including the presentation of certain honours (such as the BEM), medals and awards and attendance at the annual Remembrance Ceremony and Citizenship ceremonies within the county.
To encourage and to assess nominations for Honours and other Awards.
To liaise with local units of the Armed Forces and relative Cadet Units.
To arrange and present congratulatory messages from Her Majesty the Queen to individuals celebrating their 100th and 105th birthdays and every year thereafter and also Diamond (60th), Blue Sapphire (65th), Platinum (70th) Wedding anniversaries, and every year thereafter. For further information please get in touch with the Clerk to Lieutenancy.
