Solihull Civic Honours

The Civic Honours Awards are a way of recognising the local unsung heroes who go above and beyond to make Solihull a better place.

Solihull Civic Honours Awards in 2021

Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have taken the decision not to hold Solihull Civic Honours Awards in 2021.

The awards are very important to us and we would like to be able to celebrate winners in our usual congratulatory style, which is not going to be possible again this year. We are very sorry but hope that you will nominate someone in May 2022 when we intend to launch the awards again.

Until then we are still very interested in hearing about someone who you think deserves national recognition for all their hard work in their field of work or voluntary service, e.g. an MBE or perhaps a BEM?  Voluntary groups can also be put forward for a Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service (QAVS). 

Please contact Andrea Crowther, Honours & Awards Officer, for further details:
