Good Neighbour AwardsMon 6th September 2021
The Mayor of Beverley is asking residents of the town to nominate their good neighbours for a civic award. "Good Neighbour Awards".
The Mayor explained: “Every year, a couple of local people or organisations that have played an important part in the community life of Beverley are personally chosen by the Mayor, to receive Good Neighbour Awards.
This year we want to change that process and open it up to the community. Therefore, we are asking for the Beverley public to submit nominations. The Council will look at each individual entry and select ten recipients, who will each receive a Good Neighbour Award, with one extra special Mayor of Beverley’s Civic Award for someone who has really pushed the boat out. We want to celebrate the best of Beverley.”
Nominations can be for relatives, friends, neighbours, organisations, volunteers, shops, carers, doctors, pharmacies and other hospital staff. Also, teachers, delivery drivers, churches, takeaways, pubs - anyone who has helped you or the wider Beverley community during the pandemic.
To make a nomination write to the Town Council, including your details, the details of the person or organisations you nominate, and an explanation as to why you feel they went the extra mile during the lockdowns and should be presented with a Good Neighbour Award. Send to Beverley Town Council via firstname.lastname@example.org or by post to Good Neighbour Awards, Beverley Town Council, 12 Well Lane, Beverley, HU17 9BL. The deadline for Nominations is Friday 1st October 2021.
Winners will be presented with their awards at an event held at East Riding Theatre on 11th November, which will include special guest presenters and entertainment.
