Cherry Willingham Parish Council

The Stead Award 2016

Do you know an unsung village hero or heroine?  An individual who willingly gives up their time to assist fellow residents in whatever way they can? Someone who makes a consistent, positive difference to our community?  Maybe they help run a village club or group or are simply a good neighbour to many. If so, why don’t you put them forward to be considered for receiving The Stead Community Award 2016.

This is awarded annually by the parish council to a resident who has made a positive contribution to our community.  If you know of an individual whom you feel deserves the award in 2016, you are invited to submit a written nomination to the Parish Clerk by noon on Friday 18th March.   You will need to obtain their permission first and provide your own details in case we need to check anything with you.  Nominations must be for an individual, not a group, and Councillors are excluded.  Please feel free to re-nominate a person who you have nominated in the past who was not successful on that occasion. A winner will be selected at the March full council meeting.
