The chief executive of Blackburn's Training 2000, Jim Hargreaves of Rishton, was awarded an MBE in June 1997. Mr Hargreaves, a former Queen Elizabeth's Grammar School pupil, joined as the one of Training 2000's forerunners, the Blackburn Group Training Association, in 1967 and became a chief executive when the group merged with the Accrington branch to form the present company.

Gerry Newton was also honoured by the Queen, read his story here.
