The Whitchurch Town Council have announced that nominations for the Whitchurch Annual Community Award is now open. Nomination information must be received by the clerk to the Town Council before 30th January 2012.
The Award is given out every year to a maximum of six winners only. A special award is given to a youth. The town council solicits and collects the nominations and an independent body decides upon the winners.
SELFLESS ACTIONS BENEFIT LOCALS
The clerk stated, “If you know of someone, or a group of people, who by their selfless actions benefit local individuals, or the Community as a whole, please let the Town Council know. There is also a special Youth Award which is given to young people who have achieved or inspired others in the course of their activities.”
Earlier this year, the 2011 awards were given to: Val Newall who runs The Whitchurch Barbers and visits the homes of housebound and terminally ill people; Beth Wright who worked tirelessly to encourage us to protect our environment; and Jean Watts who was a Governor at Whitchurch C. of E. Primary School, and an active member of the Whitchurch Design Statement team as well as being a trustee of the Whitchurch Association registered charity (which oversees this website).
SPECIAL YOUTH AWARD
In 2010, Jordan Lucas – our local tumbling champion – won the special Youth Award for his exceptional sporting achievement.
This is your chance to have those special people who help make Whitchurch the wonderful community it is recognised publicly for their selfless and often unseen efforts.
