Erewash Borough Council is calling on its residents to nominate someone they admire for their selfless work for others in the borough and who deserves a pat on the back for their tireless work for the community.
The council has relaunched its Mayor’s Award scheme to honour the special people of Erewash - and it is calling on residents to make their nominations in recognition of those people who go that extra mile without expecting anything in return.
The closing date is 31 March when a panel will then consider the nominations, looking for evidence of special qualities and service beyond being a ‘good neighbour’.
The Mayor of Erewash, Councillor Val Custance, says:
“I have been so proud to serve this wonderful borough and have been truly humbled by the many people out there who work so tirelessly to help others. There are some very special people who are so caring of others and their warmth, kindness and compassion is overwhelming.
“I ask residents to please take a moment to nominate the people they know who deserve to be recognised.”
Nominations will be in confidence and publicity only given to people who actually receive a Mayor’s Award. Please note that awards cannot be made to serving councillors of the county, borough or parish councils or their employees.
Forms are available at Ilkeston and Long Eaton Town Hall receptions and online at www.erewash.gov.uk or send full details in a letter to Susan Dunkley, Democratic and Civic Officer, Town Hall, Wharncliffe Road, Ilkeston, DE7 5RP.
