Mayor of Melton David Wright is still inviting worthy nominations for his Mayor’s Awards.
There are three categories to put people forward for.
The Award of Merit recognises those who make a voluntary and selfless contribution to the community.
The Young Citizen Award recognises the positive role young people play in the community.
The Melton Borough Award acknowledges those who who contribute to the life of the borough which could be through paid work.
The Mayor said: “I’m delighted to be able to launch the Mayor’s Awards for 2017 and to continue the Mayoral tradition of celebrating those in our community who give selflessly of their time and energies towards supporting and helping others. It’s only fitting that we recognise and acknowledge this kind of service which is invaluable to our community.
“These individuals don’t seek personal recognition and often quietly go about their good work, sometimes unnoticed. I want to let them know that they really are appreciated and to provide an opportunity for us to thank them publicly.”
