Chair's Community Recognition Awards

Celebration of community stars in North Herts

Do you know someone special in your community who has gone above and beyond and made a real difference in their local community?

Someone who has dedicated their life to helping others or recently made a big impact on a person, family or group in the community? Someone who has improved the health and wellbeing of people in North Herts? An eco-warrior or maybe an exceptional young person?

We want to hear from you as we launch the 2022 Chair’s Community Recognition Awards. This year the Awards are open to anyone in the community, not just volunteers.  

The deadline for nominations is 9 January 2022. Please note, we can only accept nominations for people who have benefitted those in the district of North Herts
