Hunt begins to find area’s ‘champions’

FOLK across the area are being urged to nominate someone who makes a significant contribution to communities in Ashfield.

The Best of Ashfield’s citizens will be honoured during Ashfield District Council’s civic event at Portland College next spring.

Council chairman May Barsby has launched the search and said: “These awards recognise the hidden stars of Ashfield – people who would not normally be nominated for awards, but who play a vital role in supporting their community.”

Folk can nominate an unsung hero, a community champion or a committed volunteer and the categories include Community Groups, Business of the year and Citizen of the Year.

l Nomination forms are available from council receptions, libraries, leisure centres, Ashfield Homes Property Shops as well as corporate and civic support secretary Amanda Clifton on Mansfield 4574002.
