The Chairman's awards celebrate acts of kindness and selflessness, and recognise the efforts of just some of North Hertfordshire's local heroes who regularly ‘go the extra mile’.
There are five categories in which you can nominate your local hero.
For someone’s act or acts of kindness
It could be someone undertaking charity work or fundraising, someone who helps care for other people or animals, or who looks after facilities or buildings. Or it could go to someone whose actions make life easier or more pleasant for those around them.
For long service in voluntary or community work
This award will go to someone who has spent many years carrying out voluntary work to benefit their local community.
For helping to keep North Herts clean, safe and green
This will go to an individual or an organisation such as a school or community group. It could go a group of litter pickers, a gardening enthusiast or enthusiasts, or a recycling champion - just anyone who promotes the green and clean message.
Sporting Achievement Award
To recognise a major contribution to sporting life
This could be a person or team who has achieved great things in an amateur sport - playing, coaching or supporting. Or it could recognise someone who has improved their own or other people’s health and wellbeing by taking part in or promoting physical activity.
Young Star Award
For a young person or young people who make a difference in their local community
This is for a young person (under 25) who has made significant achievements at school or college or in their local community, or in the voluntary sector. Or it could go to a young person who has overcome challenges to reach their goal or achieve a personal ambition.
