St Wilfrid’s Stars 2023
Ripon and the surrounding area are blessed with many people and organisations who work selflessly to enhance the life of our city. We propose to honour them all with a star displayed in the Cathedral, and to make awards at a reception in the Cathedral on 26th October.
If you would like to recognise an organisation or a person who contribute to the life of our City, please do so using the form below. We are seeking nominations in the categories set out below.
Please nominate as many people or organisations as you feel ought to be recognised, not just those that you think might win!
We want to recognise and thank as many people as we can.
