The Mayor of Solihull, Councillor Mike Robinson, said: “These awards are a great way to recognise those who add so much to our community.
“I really enjoyed last year’s award ceremony and felt we had some terrific winners. I’d encourage people to submit their nominations so we can have another great ceremony with some equally deserving winners!”
