Residents and community groups are being given their last chance to put forward someone they know for a top West Norfolk award.
Nominations for the annual Mayor’s Awards for voluntary service, organised by the West Norfolk Council, are due to close next week.
And officials have issued a final appeal for suggestions of people who should be recognised for the contributions they have made to the community.
Borough mayor Geoffrey Wareham said this week: “In my role, I have been fortunate to meet many people who volunteer their time to help others.
“I am always impressed and indeed humbled by their dedication and feel that the work they do should not go unrecognised.
“These awards are a way of saying thank you to those special people who give their time selflessly and make our community a nicer place to be.”
First set up 18 years ago, this year’s awards are to be presented in a ceremony at the Lynn Town Hall on Tuesday March 12.
As in previous years, the awards recognise people who give their time and skills to help others in their communities, or who help to raise money for charity.
In order to be eligible for an award, nominees must either live in West Norfolk or have provided voluntary service or raised money for charity since at least January 2010.
People who live outside the borough, but who have helped groups within West Norfolk or who have raised money for West Norfolk charities over a period of at least three years can also be nominated.
Nomination forms can be downloaded from the mayoral section of the borough council’s website – www.west-norfolk.gov.uk.
They can also be obtained by sending an email to email@example.com, writing to the Civic Officer, King’s Lynn Town Hall, King’s Lynn, PE30 5DQ or phoning 01553 762124.
The closing date for nominations to be submitted is next Friday, January 18.
