For Immediate Release
CALLING FOR NOMINATIONS
Chard Town Council is asking for local residents to nominate people in their community who have made an outstanding contribution to Chard in some way.
We want to hear about Chard residents who have unselfishly contributed to their community. These awards are our opportunity to both recognise and thank them for their contribution to Chard
The Outstanding Service Awards are all about recognising people within the town for the good work they have done helping others – it could be one single act, or it could be over a number of years. Chard Town Council wants to know more about the unsung heroes that have demonstrated outstanding voluntary service and commitment to others.
Chard’s Annual Parish Meeting will take place on Monday 20th May 2019 in The Guildhall from 7.00pm. Members of the public are invited to join us and are welcome to ask questions.
During the meeting, residents of Chard who have contributed to the town in some outstanding way will be awarded with an ‘Outstanding Service Award’ by the Town Mayor.
If you know of someone who deserves recognition for services to the community please send your nomination in writing to The Community Liaison Officer at the Chard Town Council Offices in the Guildhall, giving the person’s details and a short paragraph as to why you feel they deserve this nomination.
All nominations must be received no later than end of day on Monday 8th April 2019.
