VOLUNTEER groups are being urged by the Lord Lieutenant of Hertfordshire, the Countess of Verulam, to enter a UK national honour.
The Queen's Award for Voluntary Service, which has an equivalent status to the MBE, recognises the exceptional contributions made to local communities by groups voluntarily devoting their time for the benefit of others.
This year Lady Verulam wants a large number of entrants from Times Territory.
She said: "Volunteering groups in Hertfordshire make a huge contribution to people's lives, often without praise for the incredible job they do.

"A prestigious national honour such as The Queen's Award for Voluntary Service can prove invaluable in so many ways to their ongoing success.
"The importance of volunteer groups is all the more apparent in the current climate, and I urge people across Hertfordshire to help recognise those doing outstanding work in their local communities.
