Nominations for the annual Mayor’s Civic Awards for Voluntary Service are now invited.

The award scheme acknowledges the very valuable contribution of people who invest time and effort into voluntary work, whether it is for the good of others or to enable money to be raised for charity. Since the scheme began in 1995 over 350 people have become holders of an Award for Voluntary Service.

The present Mayor, Councillor Elizabeth Watson said: “I am delighted that we are once again looking for nominations of volunteers who have done amazing work in the community. Without these people, life in West Norfolk would not be the same. We are so lucky that our volunteers are prepared to give up their time to enrich the lives of so many and with no reward. We are all incredibly grateful to these unsung heroes and I would urge local people to put forward their nominations”.

The scheme, which is supported by BBC Radio Norfolk, is a well-respected and high-profile award scheme within the borough. The criteria for nomination are:

A resident of the Borough of King’s Lynn & West Norfolk who provides voluntary service or raises funds for charity and has done so since at least 1 January 2011 or a resident outside of the Borough of King’s Lynn & West Norfolk who provides voluntary service within the borough or raises funds for charities specifically within the borough and has done so since at least 1 January 2011

Nomination forms may be obtained from the Civic Officer, The Town Hall, King’s Lynn, PE30 5DQ (01553 762124) or by email on civics.officer@west-norfolk.gov.uk

Nomination forms can also be downloaded from the Mayoral section on the Borough Council’s website.
