Forres in Bloom Awarded Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service 2019

The Queen’s Awards for Voluntary Service

To celebrate her Golden Jubilee, The Queen announced a new, annual Award to recognise and reward excellence in voluntary activities carried out by groups in the community.

The Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service (formerly known as The Queen’s Golden Jubilee Award) is given for outstanding achievement by groups of volunteers who:-

  • regularly devote their time to helping others in the community
  • improve the quality of life and opportunity for others
  • provide an outstanding service

It is generally considered to be the ‘MBE’ for voluntary groups.

Nominations are made online at www.gov.uk/queens-award-for-voluntary-service

Advice may be obtained from the Lieutenancy. Support from the Lord-Lieutenant for a nomination will be important.
