High Sheriff Awards 2020
In March 2020 I have the honour of hosting the 25th annual High Sheriff Awards in The County Suite, at County Hall in Hertford.
The annual High Sheriff Awards provide an opportunity to recognise and celebrate some of the fantastic individuals and voluntary organisations who are helping to make our county better.
This year, in addition to the traditional social justice and crime prevention themes, the awards will also reflect my interest in promoting stronger communities.
Throughout my year as High Sheriff of Hertfordshire, I have been supporting organisations that are working to build stronger communities, promote integration, and work across faiths.
My High Sheriff Awards will recognise and celebrate groups working across the following themes:
Building stronger communities
Integration - projects that bring together different groups of people or that aim to help disadvantaged people integrate into wider society
Community projects run by faith groups
Social Justice - in particular groups working to address addiction, domestic violence, and poor mental health
Youth related crime prevention
The deadline for receiving nominations has passed and applications are now being considered by the High Sheriff’s panel. Winners will be announced at the High Sheriff Awards evening on 12th March 2020.
