The Lord-Lieutenant of Nottinghamshire, Sir John Peace, is today launching a major initiative to thank every child and young person in Nottingham and Nottinghamshire, following on from HM The Queen’s recent broadcast to the nation.

We want to recognise the determination, resilience and motivation of children and young people, which is helping the National effort in succeeding together during the coronavirus outbreak.

You can download the Lord-Lieutenant's Certificate, which has been created in partnership with the Chief Constable, the Chief Fire Officer, NHS Accountable Officer, Nottingham City and Nottinghamshire County Council.
