BBC Essex to host High Sheriffs’ Awards live

26th February 2021

On Wednesday 3 March from 6pm BBC Essex hosted a live show and presented this year’s High Sheriff’s Awards.  These annual Awards are designed to recognise and commend local voluntary organisations that devote their time and energy to make Essex a better and safer place.

The well-known Essex presenters, Steve Scruton and Ian Wyatt, brought their inimitable style and warmth to create a wonderful event full of information and conversation.  As well as talking with groups that are receiving grants from the High Sheriff’s Fund, Steve and Ian were joined by Julie Fosh, the current High Sheriff of Essex, Nick Alston, Chair of Essex Community Foundation and B-J Harrington, Chief Constable of Essex Police.

Whilst it was hugely disappointing that we could not bring everyone together at Hylands House for the usual in-person event we were absolutely delighted that BBC Essex stepped in to save the day and host the Awards event live from their studio.

You can listen back to the show on BBC Essex online here.
