On Wednesday 3 March from 6pm BBC Essex hosted a live show and presented this year’s High Sheriff’s Awards. These annual Awards are designed to recognise and commend local voluntary organisations that devote their time and energy to make Essex a better and safer place.

Alpha Vesta was nominated for Essex Police Cup In this years awards which is a huge compliment in the short time we have been launched.

Usually the event would be held at Hylands House but for the first time ran live on the radio with a live interview with us and other nominees instead! Some great work being done across the county with the support of Essex Community Foundation and the High Sheriff.

You can listen back to the show on BBC Essex online here.
