Above and beyond: who makes a real difference in your community? Nominations invited for Mayor's award

Do you know anyone in your community who goes out of their way to improve the lives of others?

Mayor of Guildford, Cllr Richard Billington, explains: "It's really important to recognise those in the community who have made an outstanding contribution to support people in the borough. We are asking for people to nominate those who have gone the extra mile to improve the lives of others or foster good relationships."

The Mayor's Award for Service to the Community aims to recognise and encourage positive community working in the borough, and celebrates residents and groups who make a real difference by volunteering or fostering good relationships.

"A key theme to this year's award is to recognise individuals and groups who have done exceptional work in their community. We are very lucky to have so many people in the borough who contribute to the happiness of others and this award recognises their acts of kindness." adds the Mayor.

Award recipients are nominated by the local community. To make a nomination, please complete the online form on our Mayor's Award for Service to the Community page. Alternatively, you can download a form from that page or email CivicSecretary@guildford.gov.uk or call 01483 444031 for a form.

The deadline for nominations is Monday 3 February. The Mayor will present the awards at an informal ceremony on Saturday 18 April 2020.
