If you know someone in either category or a group who you think deserves to be recognised please tell us about them using the forms that are available from the Council Office or on the website. A nominated person could simply be a good neighbour who helps others in their street with shopping, gardening or other tasks, or someone who has worked hard over the years for the benefit of the community or serving a group or club to which they belong.

Previous recipients have included a charity fundraiser, Cub Pack leaders and the Chair of a pensioners’ group.

Nomination forms are available from the Town Council Offices and on their website. Nomination forms should be received in the Town Council Offices by no later than the 25 March 2019.

Additional statements or evidence may also be submitted if you wish. Nominees for the Young Persons’ Award should not have passed their 18th birthday by the closing date.

Nominations will be considered by a Council Committee and the successful candidates will be presented with their awards at an Award Ceremony later this year.
