Services to Farnham Awards nominations

The search for local heroes is on as Farnham Town Council opens nominations for the Services to Farnham awards 2019/20. Individuals and organisations are being asked to think about the local people who have given outstanding or crucial services to the community and to nominate them for an award.

“It is quick and easy to nominate using our online form – or simply request one from our offices, and we will accept nominations until our deadline of 5pm on Monday 1 December. The tough job will be choosing our award winners,” says Councillor Pat Evans, the Mayor of Farnham.

The Services to Farnham Awards, which are sponsored by Sir Ray Tindle of the Tindle News Group, take place every year to recognise the amazing work of volunteers in the Farnham community. The winners are invited to receive their awards at a ceremony hosted by the Mayor in February.

The Mayor explains: “After this year’s challenges and the response from our community, I am sure we will hear about some amazing efforts. Previous winners have contributed to Farnham in a range of ways and come from all sorts of backgrounds: from arts to sport, the environment, work with young people, empowering deprived communities and building community spirit in our villages. There are lots of examples on our website to help you get thinking.”

Nominators should complete the form from Farnham Town Council, provide someone to second their nomination and explain their reasons for nominating.

Judges will be looking for individuals who have gone the extra mile to help the community over a period of years or with a significant impact. The judging panel will consider the nominations after the closing date of 1 December and put forward their winning selections to the Full Council meeting at the end of January.
