Wokingham Borough Council’s Mayor, Cllr Bill Soane, is encouraging people to nominate inspiring local residents for his regular Roll of Honour awards. Do you know someone who goes above and beyond with local volunteering work? Perhaps they regularly fundraise for projects in the local community? Make sure you highlight their hard work, by nominating them for this prestigious award.
Cllr Bill Soane, Borough Mayor, said: “The Roll of Honour awards are incredibly important and enable us to praise our local residents for their hard work. We are always on the lookout for the borough’s unsung heroes and these awards provide us with the opportunity to celebrate their selfless work.
Any borough resident can be nominated for the award. “It is down to volunteers who make our borough such a great place to live which is why we are looking for people who make that extra effort for others,” said Cllr Soane. “There are many people out there in our community who make such a difference and we need to hear about them. For children and young people, we would like to hear about those who have overcome adversity.”
To nominate somebody, all you have to do is email the mayor’s office at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Nominations (which can only be made by Wokingham Borough residents) should be no longer than 200 words and set out why the nominee should be considered for the award. For the children’s awards, outstanding achievements in sport or arts will be considered.
Each month Cllr Soane and his deputy mayor Cllr Malcolm Richards will select worthy winners from those people nominated by members of the public. There will be children’s and adults’ categories and each winner will receive a lapel badge and scroll to mark their achievements.
