Dorset, UK – March 6, 2024

The Dorset Museum came alive with a sense of celebration and gratitude as over 120 dignitaries, volunteers, and community leaders, gathered for the High Sheriff Awards 2024. Hosted by the High Sheriff of Dorset, Colin Weston MBE JP, the event recognised the exceptional contributions of individuals and groups dedicated to improving safety and lives in Dorset communities.

The High Sheriff Awards are a symbol of distinction and acknowledgment bestowed upon those who exemplify the spirit of altruism and service. Under the theme “Helping One Another,” this year’s 22 recipients were celebrated for their selfless dedication to making a meaningful difference in the lives of others.

Colin Weston remarked, “It was a special evening for everyone involved. I am privileged to recognise the hard work and unwavering commitment of the volunteers across Dorset who generously give their time to support their communities and those in need.”

The event showcased the remarkable achievements of community groups and charities, providing them with a platform to share their work and inspire others. The evening culminated in a captivating performance by the Bovington Military Wives Choir, whose heartfelt tribute to military families left a lasting impact on the audience.

In her role as Undersheriff of Dorset, Katharine Jones, Partner at HK Law commented: “We are proud to support the work of the High Sheriff, and to help organise and run tonight’s event. It was a pleasure to see so many worthy groups and individuals receiving the recognition that they deserve, and to enjoy the wonderful performance by the Bovington Military Wives Choir.”

Expressing gratitude to the Dorset Museum for hosting the event, Colin Weston extended his appreciation to all those who made the event possible.
