Time to nominate covid heroes for a civic award


Congleton Town Council wants people in the town to nominate those who have “gone the extra mile” to help others during the pandemic for a Coronavirus Civic Award.

Residents have until Friday, 28th May to recommend their pandemic heroes for special recognition from the town council.

Jackie MacArthur, communities and marketing manager and deputy chief officer, said: “You can nominate anyone who works or lives in Congleton who you believe has made an outstanding contribution to support others through the pandemic.

“The town council is keen to recognise businesses, groups, organisations, volunteers and young people who have undertaken something extraordinary through these incredibly challenging times.”

The work of all nominees will be recognised with a certificate from the Congleton town mayor. Award recipients will be selected by an independent panel.

Winners from each group will be invited to a reception at the town hall when covid restrictions allow. This is likely to be late June.

To nominate a person, group, business or community organisation, download a form from congleton-tc.gov.uk Completed forms can be emailed to info@congleton-tc.gov.uk

Paper forms are also available from Congleton Information Centre in the town hall.
