Nominations are now being sought for Wyre’s most inspirational young people.

If you know a young person who excels in their area, why not nominate them for the Sheraton Trophy?

Every year the Mayor of Wyre presents the prestigious Sheraton Trophy to a rising star who has brought pride to the borough as a result of their achievements.

Wyre Council wants to hear about young people who have excelled in any walk of life, be it sport, the arts, community work, volunteering or achievement against the odds.

One deserving winner, chosen by the outgoing Mayor Councillor Julie Robinson, will be presented with the trophy at the Council’s Annual Meeting on Thursday 16 May.

What is the Sheraton Trophy?

The Sheraton Trophy takes its name from HMS Sheraton which was awarded the Freedom of the Borough in recognition of support given to Fleetwood by the crew during the 1977 flood emergency when the ship was visiting the port.

In 2023 the trophy was awarded to Tayla-Daisy Hoyle. She was an inspiring young role model and had shown remarkable positivity since her alopecia diagnosis. Her work involved the promotion of body positivity and raising awareness for the condition.
