Hertfordshire County Show wins Queen’s Award

A VOLUNTARY group has been awarded a prestigious award in the Queen’s Birthday Honours list.

The stewards of the Hertfordshire County Show were one of 103 groups to receive the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service – regarded as the MBE for volunteers.

The Stewards received the award for their collective support and contribution to the Hertfordshire County Show, which is held every May in Redbourne.

Chief steward Matthew Carter said: “We are both thrilled and humbled to have received this prestigious honour for our contribution to the Hertfordshire County Show.”

Award Committee Chair and former broadcast journalist Martyn Lewis CBE said: “It’s a great pleasure to celebrate the efforts of the Stewards of the Hertfordshire County Show with The Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service and help raise awareness of all they do for the benefit of others.”
