There's still time to nominate adults and young people for the Citizens and Young Citizens of Honour 2016 awards. The closing date for nominations is Friday 29 January 2016.
This year, anyone that puts forward someone for an award may also be rewarded courtesy of Ferneham Hall. Everyone who submits a form will be entered into a draw and the lucky winner will receive two tickets to a selected show of their choice.
Because of the very nature of the award it usually takes someone from the outside, looking in, to realise how special these people are and that's where we need your help. Residents are encouraged to name and acclaim individuals who they consider worthy. It might be they have done something amazing for their community, they regularly help others or have overcome a personal difficulty.
There are three different age categories for nominations: 4-11 years; 12-17 years and 18+years. Winners of the awards will receive invitations to the Mayor Making event to receive their badges, a reception in the Mayor's parlour and other Civic events such as the Remembrance Day service. They will also get a family ticket to the Gala Performance of the Panto at Ferneham Hall.
Executive Leader of Fareham Borough Council, Cllr Seán Woodward, said: "It's always great to read the many nominations that we receive and to hear about the wonderful things that our residents do. We would like as many nominations as possible, so please do send them in and show those that deserve some recognition your appreciation."
Please be aware that if you as a nominator win the two tickets to Ferneham Hall, it may not necessarily mean that your nominee will win the Citizen or Young Citizen of Honour Award.
People who have already nominated a Citizen or Young Citizen of Honour will be automatically entered into the draw.
If you are nominating someone they must be a resident of Fareham and can't be a family member.
