South Norfolk Council has launched its popular Community Awards. Now in its 13th year, the awards celebrate and recognise local people who go above and beyond to support their community. Many Wymondham volunteers and groups have won in the past, so make sure to nominate your community superstars before the deadline.

South Norfolk Council’s Chairman, Cllr James Easter, said: “There are so many people in the district who give up their time to help others and these fantastic awards are a chance to say thank you and celebrate their hard work. If you know of someone who goes the extra mile to support the community, show them how much you appreciate them and nominate them today.”

This year, there are three new categories, including Town or Parish Councillor of the Year, Connecting Communities Award and the Healthy and Active Award.

The other categories are: Young Achiever Award, Community Organisation of the Year, Business in the Community Award, Volunteer of the Year, Environmental Champion Award and Lifetime Achievement Award.

The awards are sponsored by Clarion Futures. Their Neighbourhood Investment Manager, Yvonne Ogden, said: "We’re delighted to be sponsoring this year’s Community Awards that celebrate the contributions and achievements of individuals, businesses and community groups across South Norfolk. Community spirit and support is so important, especially as the cost of living continues to bite, and it’s great to see local residents being recognised for the difference they are making.”

All shortlisted nominees will be invited along to the awards ceremony at Glen Lodge, Bawburgh Golf Club in July and the winner in each category will receive £250 to give to their chosen community group or voluntary organisation.

To make a nomination visit the Council’s website or call 01603 430611.
