AN annual awards ceremony which seeks to honour the very best people Welwyn Hatfield has to offer is back.
Nominations have opened for the borough’s Civic Awards 2012.
The award is the highest bestowed by Welwyn Hatfield Council.
They are presented each year to people who live or work in the borough for extraordinary commitment, dedication, energy and effort in their field or towards achieving a particular goal.
Mayor Carl Storer said: “The awards are now in their sixth year and each year, I am inspired by the commitment and dedication demonstrated by Welwyn Hatfield residents for the good of our community.
“The awards provide a great opportunity to say ‘thank you’ to someone deserving and I am proud to have the opportunity of publicly recognising the efforts of such individuals.
“I am delighted to declare nominations for the 2012 Civic Awards now open.”
* Entries require two nominators and should be submitted by Friday, February 17 next year.
Up to four will be selected by a community awards panel, chaired by the mayor, and presentations will take place at the annual council meeting in May.
* Nomination forms can be downloaded at www.welhat.gov.uk/civicawards
A limited number of forms are available from any of the council receptions, or by emailing contact-WHC@welhat.gov.uk, or calling 01707 357000.
