Each winner of a High Sheriff Award has been invited to a video call presentation with High Sheriff of Shropshire Dean Harris so that she can personally congratulate them watched by colleagues, friends and family.

She will also deliver certificates to the winning individuals and organisations once Covid restrictions are lifted.

Mrs Harris said: “It’s hugely disappointing that I haven’t been able to host an event where we could all celebrate together. But what I want to focus on, rather than that disappointment, is the incredible work all of the recipients have been undertaking in the county.

“These individuals and organisations all contribute so richly to the Shropshire community, and I hope receiving their award helps show them how grateful we all are for that contribution.

“I was impressed by just how many nominations there were, and the variety and quality of good work going on, often under the radar without any fanfare or fuss.

“The awards are hosted annually by the High Sheriff so I’d encourage people who didn’t get round to nominating someone this time to keep an eye out for the 2022 awards launching later this year.”

Academy, of Shifnal; Kelda Wood's Climbing Out; Maninplace, of Telford; National Probation Service (Shropshire and Telford), Newport Warm Welcome Group, Recharge Telford, Shrewsbury Ark, Stay, Telford Chin Woo, West Mercia Search and Rescue; Willowdene, of Bridgnorth; and Wrekin Housing Group.
