County search for community heroes

Nottinghamshire County Council has launched a search for community heroes and heroines — and wants to hear from the public about suggestions for people to receive a regular new award.

Nottinghamshire Community Heroes is seeking nominations for people who go the extra mile for a neighbour, an organisation or a local community.

Council chairman Coun John Handley will meet the person who is named as a Nottinghamshire Community Hero and will present them with an award for their achievements. The awards will take place on a regular basis.

Coun Handley said: “In my role as chairman, I meet many, many people who are unsung heroes in their local community or neighbourhood, undertaking selfless acts to benefit others. The aim of this award, in Robin Hood county, is to recognise some of these people to celebrate their contribution to helping make Nottinghamshire a great place to live.

“Nominations can come from anyone who wants to highlight the achievements of another person who lives in Nottinghamshire and works or volunteers within the county.”

Ideas for nominees include those who help vulnerable people, or support young people or volunteer for a good cause.

The chairman of the council will select the people who they believe deserves a special thank you.
