The High Sheriff of Suffolk Roz Eminson is pleased to announce this year’s shortlist!
We were thrilled this year to receive almost 100 nominations for the High Sheriff’s Awards 2020.
The quality of applications across the board was both astonishing and humbling and it was difficult to know quite where to start with the judging. Having said that, our panel have managed to reach a decision, and create a shortlist of nominees.
The High Sheriff has also personally written to several organisations with a special certificate of recognition, and it’s been lovely to receive messages of excitement and thanks from those who have received one.
In advance of the awards ceremony on March 26th, we would like to let all of Suffolk know how wonderful the nominees are – so please do get involved on social using the hashtag #HighSheriffsAwards2020!
Finally, a massive THANK YOU to those who took the time to nominate for this year’s awards. We invite you all to join us in congratulating this year’s shortlist.
