Carl Walter and Rob Elliot High Sheriff Award for contribution to the community

Rob & Ruth Elliot and Carl Walter set up Elliott Hall in South Wigston for youth and community and opened its doors back in 2017 with the objective was to bring the community together to provide services where there are none available.

The website says “our doors are open to everyone” which encapsulates what you do here.

Many community groups and services are offered and take place at Elliott Hall, and they collectively offer a safe and warm haven where anyone can drop in take part in an activity or just come for a chat, a warm drink and feel safe.

The range of support and groups offered to the community helps both the young and old bringing them together and giving them the opportunity build relationships with others facing similar challenges and build their own supportive circles of friends and peers.

We took a moment to remember Ruth who passed away in April last year and was passionate about South Wigston and the local community and could often be found at the hall or walking about the community. Ruth is deeply missed and is never forgotten.
