Nominees can come from all ages and backgrounds; they just need to have made a difference to their local community and live in Swale.

The nominations are open until Sunday 31 March and the winners will be selected by the Mayor of Swale, Cllr Sarah Stephen, and a panel of councillors.

Winners will be invited to an award ceremony at Swale House, in May, followed by an afternoon tea with the Mayor, last year’s awards saw five local heroes recognised.

The Mayor and other members of the judges panel are looking forward to seeing all of the nominations and rewarding the unsung heroes of Swale.

The Mayor of Swale, Cllr Sarah Stephen, said:

“I am very proud to be presenting the Civic Awards this year, as it is a chance for us all to recognise and commend the efforts of people doing good in our community.

“I am really looking forward to reading the nominations and being able to reward the winners for their amazing acts of kindness and charity in Swale.

“Meeting the winners will be a fantastic opportunity for me to hear about the wonderful achievements and work they have been doing for people in our community.”

Cllr Richard Palmer, chair of the community committee, said:

“Sometimes we can take for granted the people around us who offers support to people in need, this award gives us the opportunity to stop and admire their hard work.

“If you know someone in your life who is working hard to help people, please nominate them for this award.

“No matter the person’s age or how big or small their accomplishments may seem, anyone living in the borough is able to be nominated.

“My fellow councillors and I look forward to seeing all the nominations and relish the opportunity to offer praise and recognition to these hard-working, kind people.”
