Two special services will be held next month to honour the 20 recipients of the Cross of St Piran for 2017.

The awards, which recognise the outstanding service given by lay people across Cornwall, were introduced by Bishop Tim soon after his arrival in the Diocese.

Among those honoured this year are a church organist, an environmental campaigner, the executive principal of a schools’ trust, and an aid worker for their work with refugees.

They will be presented with their crosses at two ceremonies to be held at St Piran Church, Perranzabuloe at 3pm and 6.30pm on Sunday, March 5th.
