Award Ceremonies and Administration

Following the selection process at the start of the calendar year, the award of The Suffolk Medal will take place during the year at significant events such as Suffolk Day and the Suffolk Show.

Presentations may be made by The Lord Lieutenant and the High Sheriff, as well as by visiting members of the Royal Family and other significant dignitaries.

The medal has been founded, and will continue to be funded, by private donations from Suffolk people to the High Sheriff’s Fund managed by Suffolk Community Foundation.

The ownership, organisation and communications for the medal will remain associated with this fund and supported by the Foundation.

The decision making will be led by a representative and independent panel of Suffolk leaders.
