Pandemic Heroes Given Bailiff's Award

Jersey's Bailiff has given out 45 awards for services to the community during the coronavirus pandemic.

The islanders and groups have been nominated for going 'above and beyond' when it comes to public service this year.

110 nominations came in after the Bailiff announced the awards back in August.

It was open to anyone working in the public sector, charities and community groups - as well as businesses that offered public support during the pandemic.

17 people received 'the Bailiff's Award' - a gold copy of his official seal, and another 28 received a 'Bailiff's Citation' certificate recognising their special effort in responding to the COVID-19 pandemic.

They'll be awarded their prizes next year when public gatherings are allowed again.

Timothy Le Cocq says it was a pleasure to have so many nominations, and those recognised showed 'excellent examples of community spirit that we can look to for inspiration':

"Following our request to submit individual names and teams for recognition it was a great pleasure to see so many responses.

"These awards recognise the work of so many across our community. So many people have worked so hard that it was difficult to make a choice and the choices that we have made are well-deserving of recognition for exceptional work during the pandemic. Often it was a real challenge to encapsulate all that the recipients had done in a citation of a few lines.

"Among the 45 recipients are excellent examples of community spirit that we can look to for inspiration. It is perhaps invidious to single people out but perhaps we can be forgiven for mentioning Samuel Moore a student at Victoria College, who did many charitable acts during the lockdown and Nurse Gillian Mallet, who demonstrated exceptional leadership in running the Harbour testing facility. These are just 2 of the 45 and there could have been many more, I am sure islanders will think of other names that would have been worthy recipients.

"Covid-19 continues to test our community, but with individuals such as those recognised with these awards, we are a stronger and safer community. We have a community to be proud of."
