The Geoff Riggs Award for the Best Website
The FFHS has been awarding the accolade of 'Best website' annually since 2001 to a member society. Unfortunately there were insufficient entries under the rules to permit judging to take place; nevertheless, the judges did visit all the entered web sites, evaluated them against the entry criteria and have given dedicated comments on each one, which has gone back to the societies as feedback via email.Those web sites adjudged to be of special merit were awarded a Highly Commended certificate.
