The first whiff of spring was in the air last weekend giving everyone a chance to get outside and enjoy the wonders of Kingsbridge. Well now it is time to pay tribute to the many volunteers who graciously donate their time and talents and help keep Kingsbridge wonderful!
We launched the new “Kingsbridge Community Champions” awards last year to encourage wider community participation and it’s time to do so again. There are 6 different categories: Arts & Culture, Business, Environment, Sport, Volunteer and Young champions and it’s all about recognising and celebrating the fabulous contributions that local people make to ensure that Kingsbridge is a great place to work, rest and play. Last year’s Community Champions were as follows: Sam Dennis, Nicola Fox, Bruce Pritchard, Steve Mammatt and Jamie, Giles and Angus Grant.
Your nomination may be for a shopkeeper, a sporty person, a group, a volunteer, a young person etc. etc. The Town Council does not wish to be too prescriptive and the whole concept is for the Kingsbridge community to effectively elect their own champions with as few rules and conditions involved as possible. How do you go about it? It’s really simple, just complete a simple nomination form which can be downloaded from below, pick one up from the Council Offices at Quay House, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01548.853296. Nomination forms will also be available from the Library, Kingsbridge Information Centre and a few shops. It will only take you a few minutes to complete your nomination for your Community Champion – let’s give local people the credit they deserve.
Deadline for applications is Friday March 30th 2018.
