Nominations are now open across the county for you to nominate your Good Citizens of 2019.
Across Lincolnshire, there are thousands of people going the extra mile to support individuals, groups and communities. This might be done through raising money, looking after the environment or simply being a good neighbour, and Lincolnshire County Council want to hear about our local heroes.
Launching this year’s Lincolnshire County Council Good Citizens Awards, Leader Councillor Martin Hill, said:
“We all know someone who goes above and beyond the call of duty in their local communities.
“The Good Citizens Awards are a fantastic way to recognise the work that we often take for granted and benefits our local areas so much.
“So if you know a worthy recipient who shows commitment, selflessness and benefits others, please let us know.”
The categories are:
Citizen of the Year
Young Citizen of the Year (age 18 or below)
Community Group of the Year
Couple/Pair of the Year
Winners will enjoy a VIP day out at the Lincolnshire Show with a guest, as well as a framed certificate.
Last years’ winners included groups and individuals who gave their time to allow others to get the help and support they need.
To make a nomination, or for more information, visit www.lincolnshire.gov.uk/goodcitizensaward or call 01522 554966.
The closing date for nominations is Friday 3 May.
