Each year, the awards recognise and honour those who make an outstanding contribution to the community.
Mayor Kerry Hayes said the awards are a chance to formally recognise, celebrate and reward community champions and unsung heroes.

‘I encourage everyone to look and see if there’s someone they feel should be nominated.’
Nominators need to carefully read the category selection criteria and conditions of entry before filling in the nomination form.
