Michael Sackett is awarded British Empire Medal

Michael Oliver Sackett of Croscombe, Somerset, has been awarded the British Empire Medal in the Queen's Birthday Honours List. The award is in recognition of his 23 years' service as a volunteer in, and more recently trustee of, the Mendip Citizens Advice Bureau. (This is Somerset website).

Michael is the youngest of four sons of Alfred Barrett Sackett, MC, MA (1895–1977), and grandson of The Revd Alfred Barrett Sackett, OBE (1862–1951). Both Alfred Barrett Sacketts appear in the Notables section of the Sackett Family Association website.

Michael and his wife Jo hosted a meeting in 1994 of English Sacketts interested in the family's history, including Marion Sackett who had undertaken considerable research work, and Chris Sackett, currently the Association webmaster.
