Time to nominate your community champions

We all know someone that goes the extra mile for the good of others and their community. We also know that much of this work and effort goes unnoticed.

West Berkshire Council wants to acknowledge and thank those people within the District for the work that they do and will be launching the Community Champion Awards 2017 on Monday 11 September 2017.

This is an opportunity for local people to nominate an individual or group who deserves recognition for their work in the community.

Nominating couldn’t be easier; nominees simply need to live within West Berkshire and fit one of the following categories:

  • The Pat Eastop MBE Junior Citizen of the Year Award (nominees must be 18 or under)
  • Volunteer of the Year Award
  • Community Group of the Year Award
  • Lifetime Achievement Award

For more information email communitychampion@westberks.gov.uk. Nomination forms can be found at www.westberks.gov.uk/communitychampion which will be live from Monday 11 September 2017.

Cllr Quentin Webb, Chairman of West Berkshire Council said: “Everybody knows someone who deserves recognition for a good deed. We’re asking everyone to please spread the word about the Awards. With the help of local people, we’re looking forward to receiving more nominations than ever before and to making this year’s Community Champion Awards the very best.”

The closing date for nominations is Friday 27 October 2017.
