The New Year's Honour's List features lots of people from Cambridgeshire this year - who've contributed their time and effort over and above the call of duty.

The Honours List this year features:

It's a Knights Bachelor gong for Cambridge poet Professor Geoffrey Hill for his services to Literature. 

Meanwhile, it's the same honour for Dr Venkatraman Ramakrishnan from Grantchester, who works at the Medical Research Council for his work at the Laboratory of Molecular Biology.
