Prestigious award

On 21st February, we attended this year’s High Sheriff’s Citizenship Awards which recognise achievement and honour the positive work of local volunteers, charities and community groups.

We are pleased (and a little surprised) to let you know that we received the Award for North Bedfordshire from Vinod Tailor, High Sheriff of Bedfordshire, “In recognition of Great and Valuable services to the Community”.

Recent recipients include Bedford Street Angels, Canine Partners and Bedfordshire Games – illustrious company indeed.

We are very grateful to the High Sheriff for this Award.
