Nominations now open for Pride of Malvern Hills Community Awards
Unsung heroes are once again being sought for the Pride of Malvern Hills Community Awards.
The awards recognise dedicated members of the community that have improved the lives and well-being of residents.
Now in its fourth year, the event was created by Malvern Hills District Council and has been a huge success in the past.
Organisers are now appealing to the public to help make this year's awards bigger and better by nominating even more people, organisations or projects.
There are eight categories people can nominate in – Inspirational Young Person's Award, Cleaner and Greener Community Award, Improving Lives Award, Community Project Award, Inclusive Award and Business in the Community Award.
This year, there are two new awards which are the Dementia Friendly Award and Local Charity Award.
Those chosen to receive an award will be presented with it during a celebration ceremony at the newly renovated HD Anywhere Stadium, the home of Malvern Town FC, on Tuesday, 26 March 2020.
The awards form part of Malvern Hills District Council's Five Year Plan commitment to building stronger and healthier communities.
Cllr Tom Wells, Portfolio Holder for Community Services at Malvern Hills District Council, said: "The Pride of Malvern Hills Community Awards are a chance to celebrate the wonderful achievements of some of the district's selfless and hard working residents. If you know an individual, organisation or project that makes a difference to your community, nominate them now and ensure they get the recognition they deserve."
