THERE ARE JUST A FEW DAYS LEFT left to nominate individuals, groups, properties and businesses for the East Riding of Yorkshire Council’s annual chairman’s awards.
The awards are given to individuals, companies and organisations that have helped to improve the East Riding over the past year.
The awards are split into four categories: community, built heritage, environment and business.
The community category recognises groups and individuals for their contribution to improving the lives of those in the East Riding with a non-commercial project. Built heritage celebrates private homes, or business premises that have been sympathetically renovated and restored.
The environment award is for projects that have made an impact in the environment. Nominations for the business award are invited from businesses that have helped the economy flourish.
The top entries in each category will be invited to an awards ceremony.
People can also nominate council employees or teams for a chairman’s commendation for those who have gone above and beyond the call of duty and delivered excellent service.
A Mrs Muriel Nifton from Hedon won an individual community award back in 2006 – so perhaps the town is overdue winning another award!
Anyone may make a nomination by completing a nomination form. To submit a nomination visit www.eastriding.gov.uk/chairmansawards or ring Sarah Asquith, civic officer on (01482) 393260.
The closing date is Monday 31st January.
