REYTA Finalist Just Beverley shortlisted nominee o2 community publication award 2017
Chairmans awards

Nominations now open for 2018 Chairman's Awards

Nominations can now be made for the 2018 East Riding of Yorkshire Council’s Chairman’s Awards.

The annual awards, which are held at Bridlington Spa in May, are presented to individuals, businesses and projects that have helped improve the East Riding over the last year.

The awards will be presented by Councillor Caroline Fox, in what will be her last engagement as chairman before she ends her year in office.

The awards are broken down into five categories:

community – recognises groups and individuals for the contribution to improving lives of those living in the East Riding with a non-commercial project
built heritage – celebrates private homes, new builds or business premises that have been sympathetically renovated or restored
environment – recognises projects that have made an impact in the environment
business – recognises businesses that have helped the economy flourish
sport – celebrates local talent and commitment to sports clubs and activities.

There are some changes to the rule this year – nominees can only be entered for one category and a previous award winner cannot be nominated in the same category for a period of three years but can be entered for another.

Councillor Fox said: “I’d urge people to think about their communities and think if there are people they know of who deserve some recognition for the work they do to make the areas they live a better place.”

For more information or to submit nomination, go to www.eastriding.gov.uk/chairmansawards or email chairmans.awards@eastriding.gov.uk
