Nominations for the annual Mayor’s Community Awards have opened.

Residents can put forward anyone they think has gone out of their way to help others.

Categories include community champion, caring for others, supporting young people and best business contribution.

The winner of the Young Citizen Award will also be announced at an awards ceremony held in March.

The award, which is sponsored by the Recorder and the Redbridge Rotary Club, is for people aged 25 and under who have contributed positively to Redbridge through selfless acts or continuous commitment to community projects

Councillor Linda Huggett, Mayor of Redbridge said, “Sometimes those making a difference to their community remain anonymous, but through these awards we aim to celebrate and recognise the work they do.”

“I look forward to meeting the residents and businesses who help to make this Borough great, so please get nominating.”

Nominations close on December 30 2017.
