Alok Sharma, the Member of Parliament for Reading West, is encouraging residents of West Berkshire Council district to nominate a community champion.
West Berkshire Council's Community Champion Awards are an opportunity to thank an individual or group within the district who goes the extra mile for the good of others and their community. The awards look to recognise the achievements of a person or group whose work may otherwise go unnoticed.
The four awards on offer are: The Pat Eastop MBE Junior Citizen of the Year Award; Volunteer of the Year Award; Community Group of the Year Award, and Lifetime Achievement Award.
Nominations can be made using the webpage: www.westberks.gov.uk/communitychampion. The closing date for nominations is Friday 27 October 2017.
Alok said: "These awards are a fantastic opportunity to recognise the important contribution of individuals and groups in their communities. I would encourage those who may know of an individual or group who fits this criteria, to put them forward for one of these awards."
