Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Celebration to recognise local achievements

All parish and town councils are being asked to let us know about projects in their community that they have helped to deliver. The awards:

Community Award – best achievement of a council in the last 4 years which has directly benefited the local community

Youth Award – an initiative that has directly benefited young people

Future Project Award – the most exciting plans already in the pipeline.

Awards (and £100 cheque) will be given to a parish council and a  town council in each of the three categories.  Submissions will be judged by an independent panel who will look for initiatives that are innovative, demonstrate partnership working/community involvement, achieve value for money and are of the greatest benefit to the community.  Closing date for submissions is 20 April 2012.

Presentations to the successful councils will be made at a Chairman’s celebratory event for parishes and towns at the Council Offices, Knowle, Sidmouth on Thursday 17 May 2012.  Please contact [email protected] for further details.
