Essex Honours Programme


Dear Chairman, Councillors, Clerks & Partners,


This is to advise you of an initiative headed by Her Majesty’s Lord-Lieutenant of Essex, Mrs Jennifer Tolhurst, to help recognise more Essex people and volunteer groups for honours and awards.


We all know of those who go above and beyond to look out for others, especially during these unprecedented times. By nominating them for a national honour or award, they may be recognised for helping to make a big difference to people’s lives.


For details about how to nominate exceptional people and groups for an honour, please see the attached brochure here.


Please send the brochure to Town & Parish Councillors and others in your communities. Include it in your next newsletters to residents and link it on your council’s social media accounts and the parish residents’ pages, such as on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. You should also upload it to your websites. Please mention this honours promotion in your local council meetings.


Thank you for your support sending the Essex Honours message to your local communities and for helping to recognise those exceptional people and groups in our county.


Kind regards,


Councillor Peter Davey,

Chairman of the Essex Association of Local Councils
