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 the current High Sheriff’s interest in volunteering.
Throughout his year, he will be discovering more about the work of Hertfordshire’s voluntary sector, meeting as many volunteers as possible and, in partnership with HCF, helping to develop the skills and effectiveness of voluntary organisations across the county through the “Building Effectiveness” development programme.
The main awards will be open to all community and voluntary groups working in one or more of the following themed areas:Volunteering
Youth related crime prevention
The nomination forms will be available on the HCF website from 1st October and the deadline for receiving nominations will be 5pm on Friday 17th November after which they will be considered by the High Sheriff’s panel. Winners will be announced at the High Sheriff Awards evening on 8th March 2018 in the beautiful setting of Micklefield Barn and will receive a financial reward of up to £2,500!
The evening will also include the Building Effectiveness Awards to recognise organisations who have made the most progress as part of the HCF training and development programme, and the High Sheriff’s individual awards to recognise those who have made an outstanding contribution to their local communities.
