The Mayor’s Community and Excellence Awards show our gratitude to our very own ‘local heroes’.
The forthcoming event has changed from last year as we now wish to honour people in the workplace as well as members of the community who have gone that extra mile to help others.
The event will be held at the Walsall Town Hall on Friday 20 April 2018 and will be a celebration of our local heroes. The evening will consist of a three-course meal, musical entertainment as well as a magician.
We are asking local employers within the Borough of Walsall to nominate members of staff, both paid and volunteers in their workplace, who are deserving of an award.
We also need you to tell us about people in the community who have achieved great things or have gone above and beyond what is expected of them to make things happen. These outstanding individuals can be any age and from any walk of life. Perhaps they are a child or adult who has displayed remarkable courage, a local champion who has improved your area, a tireless charity fundraiser, a campaigner, a dedicated care worker or someone who has gone that extra mile to help others.
If you would like to nominate a person for an award, please print out and complete a nomination form. Forms can also be picked up from leisure centres, libraries and the Council House in Walsall. The closing date for receipt of completed nominations has been extended to Friday 18 January 2018.
All nominations will be considered by an independent judging panel and the finalists will be invited to attend the awards ceremony along with you, the person who nominated the finalist.
