Last chance to nominate Dover's heroes
There is still time – just – to make nominations for an
award scheme which recognises the work of ordinary people.
The People of Dover Awards, launched by Dover Town Council with the
support of the Mercury, are aimed at thanking people who make a
difference to the town or its residents.
There are seven awards covering different categories but the
descriptions are left open and some suggestions are being given to
help people decide who to nominate and what for.
The categories are for outstanding contributions to business in
Dover, beautiful Dover, helping your neighbour, health, sport and
wellbeing, heritage, and voluntary and community work. There
will also be a special award for a young person.
The person nominated does not have to live in Dover but the
contribution they have made must have benefited either the town or
Nominations will be considered by a panel which will draw up a
shortlist and those selected will be voted on by the public to
decide who receives the award.
Nominations can be made for individuals, groups or businesses. The
closing date for entries is tomorrow (Thursday), with the award
ceremony on May 1.
To make nominations, go to www.surveymonkey.com/s/V58W553
