Nominations invited for Christchurch Civic Awards

Friday 19 August

Nominations invited for Christchurch Civic Awards 2005

Nominations are being called for this year's Christchurch Civic Awards.


"These Awards are an opportunity for people and organisations working in the community to be recognised for what they do," Christchurch City Council International Relations co-ordinator, Dave Adamson said.

Individuals (of any age) or societies can be nominated for an award. Categories include recreation, youth activities, social welfare, educational services, cultural affairs, religious studies or any other substantial service, usually of a voluntary nature, that helps to further the vision of Christchurch. This is outlined in the Christchurch City Council's Annual Plan.

Successful nominees will receive a framed certificate and boxed medallion from the Mayor of Christchurch at a civic reception to be held later this year

Dave Adamson said, " society would be in a sorry state if it wasn't for people like this ( the recipients). They contribute an enormous amount and often receive no recognition. The Christchurch Civic Awards are a way to address that."

Nomination forms are available from Civic Offices, Council Service Centres and Christchurch City Libraries or by phoning 941 8775, for one to be posted. Nominations close on Friday 23 September 2005.
