Time is running out to nominate an unsung hero who works tirelessly for a cause or a charity for the Rushmoor Community Award

The award, organised by Rushmoor Borough Council, is open to all residents and encourages local people to recognise those who, over many years, have made a significant contribution to the communities of Aldershot and Farnborough. Nominations for the 2019 award close on Monday 25 February.

Councillors on the Licensing, Audit and General Purposes Committee judge the award, which the Mayor of Rushmoor will present to the winner in June.

Councillor Gareth Lyon, Rushmoor Borough Council’s Cabinet member for Corporate and Democratic Services, said: “We know the amazing contribution volunteers make to our communities in Aldershot and Farnborough, and much of their work goes under the radar because they are not the type of people who shout about what they do. The community award gives the rest of the community the chance to salute their incredible efforts so I would urge residents to get nominating!”

Residents can nominate someone at www.rushmoor.gov.uk/communityaward or ask for a form by ringing 01252 398 829 or by emailing Kathy.Flatt@rushmoor.gov.uk

The winners of the last Rushmoor Community Award in 2017, were husband and wife, Mick and Caroline Mills from Aldershot, who were recognised for their involvement in Scouting and the Royal British Legion over many years.
