Who is Your Community Hero?

Who is Your Community Hero?

Hastings District Council is calling for nominations for the 2011 Civic Honours Awards, which recognise an individual, group or organisation which has contributed significantly to Hastings District.

Nominations are open until 5pm on Friday, February 18. Nominations will be considered by the new Civic Pride Committee before the awards are presented by the Mayor of Hastings, Lawrence Yule, at an Opera House function in April.

Mayor Yule is urging residents to consider nominating a member of their organisation or the community who they feel are deserving.

“These awards recognise our stand-out residents for their dedication, perseverance and tenacity in fulfilling their aim to help, teach or nurture others or for their length of service,” Mayor Yule says.

“This year, we would also be interested in receiving nominations for young or new volunteers who have made a significant difference in the time they have been volunteering,” he says.

Categories for Civic Honour Awards are the arts, culture, education, health, recreation, sport, welfare and youth.

Nomination forms are now available to download from the Hastings District Council website, or can be collected from the Hastings, Havelock North and Flaxmere libraries or Council’s Civic Administration Building in Lyndon Road.

Alternatively, please ring Hastings District Council Customer Service Centre on ph. 871 5000 to request a form, or email .
