PUBLISHED: 11:00 19 November 2017
Welwyn Hatfield residents are being encouraged to submit nominations for the borough council-run Civic Awards.
The 2018 event, designed to celebrate local people’s endeavours and inspirational achievements, will be sponsored by its repairs and maintenance contractor Mears.
A council spokeswoman said the deadline for nominations is Friday, January 19.
Up to five people will be selected for each award by a community panel, chaired by Welwyn Hatfield mayor Lynne Sparks, and presentations will take place at a glitzy ceremony on May 21.
Winners will receive a trophy, certificate, cheque for £250 and a page in the Civic Awards Roll of Honour, which records their achievement for posterity.
Mayor Sparks said: “This is a great way to recognise the shining stars and often unsung heroes, who work tirelessly – either in their job or as volunteers – for the benefit of their communities.
“It’s easy to nominate someone for an award, and a great opportunity to say thank you in a truly memorable way.”
