Civic Awards 2017
It gives me great pleasure to seek nominations for our Civic Awards. This initiative, now in its fourteenth year, enables us to formally recognise outstanding community service of our wonderful Felixstowe volunteers. Since the Civic Awards began we have been privileged to honour a good number of individuals and groups but we know that there are many more dedicated volunteers working in our community who deserve this honour. We would love to hear about anyone you know who carries out voluntary community service in Felixstowe who you think may deserve one of our following awards:
The Mayor of Felixstowe Award (or Mayor’s Award?): Presented to up to 5 local individuals for their personal contribution to the community.
HMS Ganges Youth Trophy: Presented to a local young person (aged 21 or younger) or organisation supporting young people in Felixstowe.
The Community Award: Presented to recognise the contribution to the community by a local organisation.
We have been delighted by both the quantity and quality of the nominations that we have received in previous years. Therefore, if you have made a nomination in previous years for someone who has not yet received an award, you are encouraged to nominate them again. In any case, we would be most grateful to receive your completed nomination forms by 24th March 2017.
Nominations will be considered by the Awards Panel in April and the winners will be honoured at our Civic Awards presentation ceremony on Wednesday 3rd May 2017.
