Nominations are starting to come in for this year’s Pride in Fenland awards.
Now is your chance to give a pat on the back to the unsung heroes who are quietly making a difference to our communities.
The Fenland Citizen has once again teamed up with Fenland District Council to honour the individuals and groups who contribute so much to the life of the area.
An awards ceremony will be held on Thursday, March 17, at Wisbech St Mary Community Centre.
Last year, Chatteris Royal British Legion were presented with the Judges Award.
Youngsters and their leader Leah Templeman had been working hard in Chatteris to ensure the town’s men who were killed in the First World War are remembered, along with other important projects.
Walsoken pensioner Cyril Snushall was presented with the good neighbour title while Wisbech’s Rose Fair Committee took the group award.
Pollyanna Edwards, a hard-working Thomas Clarkson Academy pupil, received the young citizen award.
We are looking for winners in the following award categories:
- Good Neighbour (a person including a volunteer benefiting the community) is open to anyone who volunteers to help a group or person. They might help with shopping, jobs around the home or garden, or visit regularly for a chat.
- Group, club, organisation or charity which volunteers to benefit the community.
- Young Citizen (carer or volunteer benefiting the community) is open to anyone under the age of 25.
- Volunteer in the community is open to anyone who volunteers their time through a charity, group or organisation.
