Mayor’s Community Awards
Published: 6 December 2017
Don’t miss out on your chance to nominate local individuals or groups who have generously given their time to help others.
If you know someone who embodies the spirit of civic pride and has made a big difference to the Borough, now is the time to recognise their work by nominating them in the Mayor’s Community Awards. Nominations close Saturday 30 December 2017
Across the Borough, people go above and beyond to help build stronger communities and make Redbridge a great place to work and live in. Many devote time and effort to care for relatives, friends or young people in the local community. While others show their civic pride by supporting us to create a safer environment or going that extra mile to give something back to the local community.
A panel of Councillors, officers and people from the local community will meet to shortlist the nominations and then select winners in the different award categories.
The awards ceremony will be held on Thursday 22 March 2018 at a special invitation only event in Redbridge Town Hall, Ilford.
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.”
