West Lindsey District Council is delighted to bring back its Community Awards scheme.
The awards gives special recognition to the unsung heroes who do an amazing job working in the community.
If you know of someone who you think deserves recognition for their hard work in the district please nominate them and enter them into to the awards. The deadline for suggestions is 1st March 2016. Chairman of the Council, Cllr. Angela Lawrence said:
“I am thrilled to be able to welcome back the community awards. As district councillors we come across so many people in the community who volunteer their time, support local town and parish councils and have a real passion for the places they live and work.
“A lot of the time the work goes un-noticed but the contribution is valued and this is an opportunity for us to celebrate their achievements.”
The categories are:
- District Champions Citizen of the Year 2016
- Parish/Town Council of the Year 2016
- Parish/Town Councillor of the Year 201
- Volunteer of the Year 2016
- Community Group of the Year 2016
- Chairman of the Council’s Special Award – this is chosen by the Chairman of the Council. It could be a nominee for another award or someone the Chairman has met while on civic business.
Winners will be presented with their awards at a special ceremony on the evening of Thursday, 28th April 2016 at Market Rasen’s Festival Hall.
