In its fourth year, Kingsbridge Community Champions shine a spotlight on those working to strengthen the community in Kingsbridge. With your help Kingsbridge Town Council wants to recognise the people who go that “extra mile” and have made a positive impact in our town and your nominations are needed. We are talking about all activity, big or small, from all kinds of people; a friend, colleague, neighbour or volunteer.There are 6 different categories: Arts & Culture, Business, Environment, Sport, Volunteer and Young Champions and last year’s Community Champions were Lawrence Townsend, Dave Cripps, David Griffiths, Gary Jolliffe, Liz Raeburn and Sandy Gilbert. The Town Council was delighted to acknowledge their achievements.
We do 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 simple, just complete a nomination form which can be downloaded from www.kingsbridge.gov.uk, pick one up from the Council Offices at Quay House, email email@example.com 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 27th 2020.
