Newcastle Freedom of the Borough Awards

Written by on 19 May 2021

The Royal Stoke University Hospital is to be awarded the Freedom of the Borough 

by Newcastle Borough Council, an award that is only given to local people or organisations who in the opinion of the local authority have given outstanding services to the borough. 

It’s for their selfless work, dedication and care given to borough residents and beyond, during the Coronavirus pandemic.” 

Later this year a short ceremony will take place where the official ‘scrolls of freedom’ will be handed over to the Chief Executive of the Hospital, Tracy Bullock, to mark the honour.

Also being awarded the Freedom of the Borough this year is borough resident Jim Worgan in recognition of his life-long support of community groups and associations in the borough. 

Jim worked for 32 years in the mining industry and has also been a stalwart supporter of local mining memorial groups.
