The search is on for this year’s community champion who could receive their moment of recognition at Hertsmere Borough Council’s Civic Awards.
The Mayor of Hertsmere, Councillor Alan Plancey, wants to hear about individuals or groups living or working in the community who give up their time to improve the lives and circumstances of Hertsmere residents. Their names will be considered by a panel and the winners announced at the Mayor of Hertsmere’s Civic Dinner on Saturday 5 April at Elstree Studios. Nominations will need to be submitted to the Mayor’s secretary by Friday 31 January.
As well as the Civic Awards, nominations are also invited for The Dave Rankin Award, which recognises individuals or groups involved in improving community safety, and the Youth Civic Award, which recognises the contribution made by residents aged 18 or under.
Mayor Cllr Plancey said: “This is a chance to honour anybody who has made a real contribution to the community. They may have run a local sports club for young people in their spare time, organised a community event which brought people together or they may make a difference by caring for the elderly or vulnerable. We know there are lots of incredible people in our community, so please nominate someone special for an Award.
“Whatever the reasons you feel someone should be nominated, I want to hear from you. It's a great opportunity to say thanks to the people in our borough who go about their work with very little or no recognition, but who we could not do without.”
People nominated should have contributed to activities or initiatives which have shown a benefit to the local area and directly involved other community members or colleagues. Nominees should have worked in a voluntary capacity or carried out work which is considered over and above their normal paid employment duties.
Please contact the Mayor’s Secretary, Hertsmere Borough Council, Civic Offices, Elstree Way, Borehamwood, Hertfordshire, WD6 1WA on 020 8207 7477 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
