Nominate someone for a civic award

People can now nominate someone for a new civic award that recognises people who work hard to help others.

Anyone who works quietly behind the scenes and lives in Swale can be nominated, there are no age limits and people from all walks of life are welcomed.

The nominations can be made from 1 February to 31 March and will be judged by the Mayor of Swale, Cllr Simon Clark and a panel of councillors, with awards being presented at a ceremony in May.

Winners will be invited to an afternoon tea with the Mayor following the presentation of their award.

The Mayor of Swale, Cllr Simon Clark, said:

“We’ve met many amazing people over the years who do so much to help others and we want to celebrate them.

“If you know of anyone who is doing wonderful things in your local community, then get in touch and nominate them for a civic award.

“We’re hoping for a huge response and some tough decisions when it comes down to the judging, so pass the message on.”

Cllr Richard Palmer, chair of the community committee, said:

“Nominations are open now and we want to hear from you.

“Do you know someone that works tirelessly, rain or shine, to care for the people in your community? Now is the time to recognise all their hard work.”
