Following the tour earlier in the day, the three High Sheriffs of Shropshire, Worcestershire and Herefordshire changed into shrieval finery to award a number of quite remarkable young people who had made a difference by selfless action of some kind. This varied from extraordinary feats of fund raising, through caring for others through to very brave saving of lives. The citations were very moving. It was an honour to meet these outstanding individuals and their proud families.
With such people, the future is bright.
Here is a link to the nomination from for this year’s awards. These have now been awarded but 2019 beckons and nominations will be welcome.
