Do you know a remarkable person who has made a difference to a community in Gedling borough? If so then get them recognised with a Nottinghamshire Community Hero Awards.
Nottinghamshire County Council is seeking nominations for people who go the extra mile for a neighbour, an organisation or a local community.
Some ideas for nominees are those who help vulnerable people with shopping, provide a lift to a medical appointment, support young people in their community, volunteer for a good cause, or lead a local community project which has made a difference to people’s lives.
Nottinghamshire County Council’s Chairman, Councillor Kevin Rostance, will meet the person who is named as a Nottinghamshire Community Hero and present them with an award for their achievements.
He said: “I am delighted to launch the first round of the Community Hero Award, which will be the first I present as Chairman. The Chairman’s Community Heroes award gives us the opportunity to raise the profile of community champions in local areas right across Nottinghamshire.
“It’s a fantastic way to recognise the hard work of residents within the county, celebrate their achievements and say thank you for the great work that they do in helping make Nottinghamshire a great place to live, work and visit.”
The Nottinghamshire Community Hero nominations criteria are as follows:
– Nominees must live in the county
– Nominees must work or volunteer within the county
– Nominations should not be party political
– Nominees and those nominating would feature in award publicity
The nominations will be reviewed by the council’s chairman and the award will be presented to an individual who has been nominated.
To nominate someone, please visit: www.nottinghamshire.gov.uk/nottscommunityheroes and submit your nomination by October 31, 2019.
