Nominations open for Peterborough’s first Civic Awards

168

Do you know a young person who has gone out of their way to help someone in their community? Or perhaps you know someone who volunteers their time to bring the community together?

Peterborough City Council has launched its new Civic Awards to recognise residents, groups, organisations and businesses who have made a real difference to their local community. 

The city council is asking people to nominate individuals or groups they think deserve to be recognised for their efforts and achievements.

The categories for the awards are as follows:

  • Young Person
  • Lifetime Achievement
  • Community Involvement
  • Business
  • Environment
  • Contribution to Art and Culture
  • Contribution to Sport

Anyone can nominate a resident, group, organisation or business within the city for an award as long as the nominee meets the criteria for that award.

Nomination forms are available to download on the council’s website, from the Town Hall reception, or by emailing CivicAward@peterborough.gov.uk.

The closing date for nominations is 5pm on Friday 31 October 2014. Nominations should be emailed to CivicAward@peterborough.gov.uk or posted to Natalie Moult, Civic Awards, Governance Department, Peterborough City Council, Town Hall, Peterborough, PE1 1HG.

Following the closing date all nominations will be passed to the Honours Panel which will meet in November 2014 to draw up a shortlist of finalists and select the winner of each award category.

The winners of the Civic Awards will be announced at the Council meeting on 3 December 2014. Winners will be presented with awards at a Civic Award ceremony in February 2015.
