Nominations for the 2017 Sanctuary Housing Shiregreen Community Awards are now OPEN!
This year we are very proud to be hosting three memorial awards, the Karl Barton award to recognise achievement made by 10-16 year olds, the Kath Page Green Fingers award that recognises the work that enhances Shiregreen green spaces and the Good Neighbour Award for someone who goes the extra mile for the person next door, kindly sponsored by Gill Furniss MP in memory of Harry Harpham.
We are now looking for nominations for those who have made an outstanding contribution towards their community and deserve to be recognised for it. The categories for this year’s award are:
• The Karl Barton Award – For positive community action made by young people aged 10-16 living in Shiregreen.
• Young Achiever of the Year – For 17-25 year olds who have made a great contribution to the community and raising the profile of young people in the area.
• Good Neighbour – Nominate your neighbour, or someone you know who lives in Shiregreen, who goes the extra mile to make a difference for the person next door.
• David Blunkett Community Safety Award – Recognition for those who help to make Shiregreen a safe and friendly place to live.
