Do You Have a Community Champion?

By bellmannews / May 15, 2022

IS there someone you know in Stonehaven who goes that extra mile for our community – or has worked hard and achieved success, or shown bravery – or sometimes all it takes is a cup of tea and a kind ear.

If so, then now is the time to think about nominating them for the 2022 Community Award which is made each year by Stonehaven and District Community Council, Stonehaven Business Association and our local churches.

Last year’s winner was Stevie, the local volunteer who walks miles every week, keeping Stonehaven’s streets free from litter.

This year’s award will be given to a person who is over 18 years of age and who has achieved outstanding achievement, excellence or merit in one of the following area

voluntary work in the community
academic or sporting success
an act of bravery
outstanding caring or community service
special achievement despite limitations imposed by hardship, disability or long term illness
enhancing the perceived image of our community
or any other appropriate kind of excellence.

The candidate must have a strong association with Stonehaven.

The nomination must be in writing or by e mail and must include a supporting statement explaining the reasons for nomination; it should be submitted by a person not related to the candidate. Submissions must be received by the secretary (including complete name, address and telephone number/e mail) by May 16th 2022.

The candidate must agree to being nominated and to the presentation and publicity that will be given to the award prior to nomination
