A deputy mayor is calling upon residents to nominate volunteer groups, businesses and individuals for royal awards.
Deputy Mayor of Leek, councillor Bill Cawley has received a correspondence regarding the call for nominations from Sir Trevor Soar, Deputy Lieutenant of Staffordshire, following a meeting with Sir Soar recently.
In his letter to cllr Cawley, Sir Soar said: “As we discussed I have been charged by the Lord Lieutenant, Ian Dudson CBE KstJ, to act as the Lieutenancy’s co-ordinator for the Staffordshire Moorlands District and The Lieutenancy is especially interested in: businesses, charities and public bodies suitable for Royal visits; publicising and nominating voluntary groups for the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service; publicising and nominating exceptional businesses for the Queen’s Award for Enterprise; nominations for personal honours and recommendations for invitation to Royal Garden Parties.”
He added: “The county has long been underrepresented in these forms of recognition and we are working hard to rectify this.
“If you can help with your local knowledge or encourage other councillors and interested parties to let me know of people or voluntary organisations that may be deserving than perhaps we can get some more recognition and awards for the work I know will be going on.”
Cllr Cawley relayed his correspondence from Sir Soar at a recent Leek Town Council meeting, where councillors agreed to help promote and raise awareness of the awards.
Anyone in Leek who would like to put forward a nomination for any of the three kinds of royal awards, is asked to contact Leek Town Council on 01538 381271, or email email@example.com.
