Queen's Birthday Honours are announced on or around the date of the Queen's Official Birthday in Australia, Canada, New Zealand, and the United Kingdom. The dates vary, both from year to year and from country to country. All are published in supplements to the London Gazette and many are formally conferred by the monarch (or her representative) some time after the date of the announcement, particularly for those service people on active duty.

Blairgowrie are amongst the most successful teams in Perthshire, having won ten Currie Cups, eight Perthshire Junior League Championships, and thirteen Perthshire Junior Cups between the time of formation in 1946 and the disbandment of the Perthshire League in 1969.
When the Perthshire, Angus, and Dundee leagues combined to form the Midlands League, Blairgowrie were the league champions three years in a row, winning the league in 1969–70, 1970–71 and 1971–72. They won it for a fourth time in 1974–75.
Some 48 players have left Blairgowrie to become Senior footballers, and they include Charlie Thomson, Kenny Cameron, and Lindsay Kydd to name a few.
The club's record attendance is 5,200, which occurred during the 1958–59 Scottish Junior Cup quarter-final replay against the eventual winners Irvine Meadow.
Up until the end of the 2005–06 season, they played in Tayside Division One of the Scottish Junior Football Association's Eastern Region.
The SJFA restructured prior to the 2006–07 season, and Blairgowrie found themselves in the twelve-team East Region, North Division. They finished fourth in their first season in the division, and in 2007–08, won the league with a game to spare, beating Downfield 6–1 in their final home league fixture.Columbia Business School
Columbia Business School (CBS) is the business school of Columbia University in the City of New York in Manhattan, New York City. Established in 1916, Columbia Business School is one of the oldest business schools in the world. It is one of six Ivy League business schools, and has been referred to as among the most selective of top business schools.King Edward's School, Birmingham
King Edward's School (KES) is an independent day school for boys in Edgbaston, an area of Birmingham, England. Founded by King Edward VI in 1552, it is part of the Foundation of the Schools of King Edward VI in Birmingham.
It is a boys' school, although it shares the site, and is twinned, with King Edward VI High School for Girls (KEHS). Whilst the two schools are run completely separately, dramatic arts, societies, music and other events are often shared; the schools also share a couple of hockey pitches and several clubs. The shared area is called Winterbourne after the nearby Winterbourne Botanic Garden.Monetary Policy Committee
The Monetary Policy Committee (MPC) is a committee of the Bank of England, which meets for three and a half days, eight times a year, to decide the official interest rate in the United Kingdom (the Bank of England Base Rate).
It is also responsible for directing other aspects of the government's monetary policy framework, such as quantitative easing and forward guidance. The Committee comprises nine members, including the Governor (from 2013 Mark Carney), and is responsible primarily for keeping the Consumer Price Index (CPI) measure of inflation close to a target set by the government (2% per year as of 2019). Its secondary aim – to support growth and employment – was reinforced in March 2013.
Announced on 6 May 1997, only five days after that year's General Election, and officially given operational responsibility for setting interest rates in the Bank of England Act 1998, the Committee was designed to be independent of political interference and thus to add credibility to interest rate decisions. Each member has one vote, for which they are held to account: full minutes of each meeting are published alongside the Committee's monetary policy decisions, and members are regularly called before the Treasury Select Committee, as well as speaking to wider audiences at events during the year.Reed's School
Reed's School is an independent day and boarding school for boys located in Cobham, Surrey, England, founded by Rev. Andrew Reed, D.D. in 1813 and incorporated by Act of Parliament in 1845 under the presidency of the Archbishop of Canterbury, the Duke of Wellington and the Marquis of Salisbury. It is boys only until Year 11, but admits girls in Years 12 & 13. There are currently around 700 day pupils (620 boys, 80 girls) and 100 full-time boarders (80 boys, 20 girls). The school has historical links with the City of London Corporation and the British Royal Family, a member of which has acted as patron from the school's earliest days. Since 1951, Queen Elizabeth II has acted as the school's 15th patron and has visited the school twice as the reigning monarch (she also visited as Princess Elizabeth in 1946), once in March 1997 and most recently in March 2014 (along with Prince Philip) as part of the school's bicentennial celebrations. During the 2014 visit, the Queen unveiled a new stained glass window, designed by the artist Helen Whittaker, in the Chapel. Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother opened a new wing in 1959 (this currently houses the 6th form boarders) and planted a tulip tree in the school's grounds. She had previously opened a library in 1939 at the school's former site at Watford. Since 1966, the school's headmasters have been members of the Headmasters' and Headmistresses' Conference (HMC). Former pupils are known as "Old Reedonians".When Saturday Comes
