Nominations now sought for the Shipston Community Award
Shipston Town Council is calling on all residents to nominate their community heroes for the 2018 Shipston Award.
The Shipston Award recognises work done by volunteers to support the local community. Originally known as the Anne Sankey Medal, the award was created by former Mayor, Anne Sankey, who led the council in 1998 and was a fervent supporter of community initiatives.
Shipston owes a huge amount to those who volunteer their time to support local services and activities. From fundraising to running local clubs or events, the town is fortunate enough to have many examples of voluntary work. The Shipston Award gives the town an opportunity to recognise those efforts.
Examples of community initiatives include the many and varied events in the town, clubs and societies which provide services and activities for residents, and fundraising efforts to support local charities.
Last year the award was given to Tim Porter in recognition of his many years of service to the Shipston Proms, which will celebrate its 20th year this year.
If you know of someone who is going above and beyond to serve the local community, councillors want to hear from you.
To nominate, simply complete the nomination form on page 9 of the March 2018 Forum and send it in to the Town Clerk at New Clark House, West Street, Shipston. Alternatively, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org containing the same information (see image below).
Nominations will be reviewed by councillors, with the winner being announced at the Annual Town Meeting on 19th April at Shipston High School.
