Hatfield’s University of Hertfordshire is looking for an inspirational student whose contribution to the community deserves recognition.

Nominations for the Student Community Award, run for the second year by the university and its policing team, are open to March 31, with a trophy presentation on April 28.

Last year it was won by a student who helped reunite a missing 93-year-old man with his family, with the runners-up a group who helped at a community centre.

PCSO Louise Luxford said: “Many of the students at the University help members of the community in one way or another. Some are always on hand to help elderly neighbours for example, whilst others volunteer within community youth groups.

“This award scheme aims to recognise the positive impact these students have in the borough. We are keen to hear from all members of the community who would like to nominate a student.”
