Mayor seeks nominations for 2017 Mayor's Awards

The Mayor, Councillor David Wright, is seeking nominations for the 2017 Mayor’s Awards.  There are 3 categories of Mayor’s Award these being the long-standing Award of Merit for those who make a voluntary and selfless contribution, the Melton Borough Award for those who contribute to the life of the Borough which could be through their paid work and the Young Citizen Award to recognise the positive role young people play in the community (upper age limit now 25).

The Mayor said:-

"I am 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 is 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.”
