On Sunday 10 March the High Sheriff of Leicestershire Mrs Henrietta Chubb JP visited Elliott Hall in South Wigston to present the High Sheriff award to both Carl Walter and Rob Elliott for the outstanding contribution they have made to the community of South Wigston.

Elliott Hall has gone from being a youth provision to now providing support for all the community in South Wigston. From the groups to the veteran's events to Christmas Capers, Rob and Carl are behind them all.

However Rob and Carl know that they do not make this contribution alone so alongside the High Sheriff awards they also held the Elliott Hall Volunteer Awards, attended by our mayor and leader of the council, to recognise some of the amazing contributions to the community local volunteers make.

Each award was named after a local person who has made an outstanding contribution to the community.

A massive congratulations - and thank you - to the winners!
