Fareham Borough Council is asking residents to nominate their hero for the Citizen and Young Citizen of Honour Awards 2017.
The Council runs the awards every year to honour and recognise residents who have made a difference to the lives of local people.
There are three age categories; 4-11 years, 12-17 years and 18+. Nominations can be for showing outstanding bravery, volunteering, helping others at school or college or for having done something else that they think is amazing.
Executive Leader of Fareham Borough Council, Cllr Seán Woodward, said: "We're asking residents to nominate their very own hero. It could be someone who has been caring for an individual with a debilitating condition or someone who gives unpaid voluntary service to the community. Whatever it is, we want to hear about it. Nothing is too small!"
Winners will receive invitations to:
The Mayor Making ceremony in May with two guests, to receive their award badges from the outgoing Mayor
A reception with the new Mayor to receive Citizen of Honour certificates
The Mayor's Civic Service and Remembrance Day Service
A family ticket for the Gala Performance of the Pantomime held at Ferneham Hall.
The closing date for nominations is 31 January 2017. Those who are nominated must be resident in Fareham and, if you are nominating someone, you can't be a family member.
