London Borough of Barnet

Nominations sought for 2013 Civic Awards

Published Thursday 11 October 2012

Residents are being invited to nominate a person or group that they feel has made an outstanding contribution to borough life for Barnet Council’s annual Civic Awards.

The awards, now in their thirteenth year, are an opportunity for the borough to officially recognise the commitment and hard work of those who strive to make a positive difference to the lives of others.

It could be someone who deserves some recognition, works tirelessly for little or no reward or perhaps somebody who gives up their free time to volunteer for a good cause.

Barnet Council is now asking residents to submit their nominations for the 2013 awards.

The deadline for applications is 31 December 2012.

To be eligible nominees should live or work in Barnet.

Councillors of the London Borough of Barnet and previous winners are not eligible for nomination.

All nominees receive a certificate, with those deemed to have made the greatest contribution presented with a framed vellum by the Worshipful the Mayor of Barnet Councillor Brian Schama at an awards ceremony due to take place in March 2013.

Nomination forms are available from Hendon Town Hall, in The Burroughs, any of the borough’s libraries, North London Business Park reception or by downloading a copy.

Last year seven Barnet residents were honoured for making a significant contribution to the community, and 32 nominees recognised, at a special ceremony at Hendon Town Hall, in The Burroughs. Their details can be viewed on our Civic awards page.

Last year's Mayor of Barnet, Lisa Rutter, said: “Every year we are continually amazed at the quality of the nominations and outstanding contributions that so many of our residents make to the borough.

“Their contributions help to make Barnet a richer place to live and it is tremendously important that we continue to give them public recognition they deserve.”
