OSWESTRY MAN awarded British Empire Medal (BEM) in the Queen’s Birthday Honours
Mr George Miah (BEM) has been awarded a BEM for his services to the community throughout the town.
The honours list recognises the achievements of a wide range of extraordinary people across the United Kingdom and is an award given by the Queen for outstanding service to the community or local ‘hands on’ service.
Mr Miah, opened his restaurant, The Simla, in Oswestry 44 years ago, and has played a huge part in the community ever since.
He said his British Empire Medal was overwhelming and a complete shock.
Mr Miah has raised hundreds of thousands of pound for charity over the years, mainly Shropshire charities and good causes but also to help the Indian sub continent.
He and his wife Julie also have links with several local schools, helping to give the pupils an understanding of Indian culture or getting involved with their international week celebrations.
The charity work is a whole team effort involving the family and my staff,” he said.
“It is something that I have done, quietly, for a long, long time.”
He has also spent many years involved in the Muslim community for Shropshire and beyond.
The list is usually published in June, when the Queen celebrates her official birthday, but it was postponed so that individuals who played crucial roles in the first months of the coronavirus outbreak could be added.

Situated in the heart of Oswestry, the Simla Tandoori Restaurant is one of the oldest Indian restaurants in Shropshire and the surrounding areas.
The perfect blend of traditional Indian cooking served with Shropshire hospitality, the Simla in Beatrice Street Oswestry serves classical Indian food.
Celebrating over 3 decades of culinary excellence this family owned business has created mouth-watering Indian dishes that replicate the high quality of cuisine enjoyed by the army officers at the old hill station in north west India during the British raj, from which the restaurant draws its name.

Superb food. Seriously. I have been for many curries across the country and this was by far the best. Friendly, helpful staff too.
