Community Champs to be honoured

Date: 13 Nov, 2017

People and organisations doing unsung work for the community will be honoured at an award ceremony this week. 

The winners of the first ever Stafford Borough Council Community Awards will be recognised at a presentation on Thursday (16 November). 

The awards celebrate the work of individuals or organisations who work towards improving their community. The evening will be hosted by the Mayor of the Borough, Councillor Aidan Godfrey.   

Winners and runners up will be revealed from four categories relating to ‘Inspiring Individuals,’ ‘Action in the Community,’ ‘Youth and Education,’ and ‘Business.’ There were more than 50 entries from a range of groups across the borough. 

Examples of good work has included people setting up litter picks in their area, schools who have helped conserve wildlife, or businesses who have introduced sustainability initiatives that have reduced their carbon footprint. 

Councillor Frank Finlay, Cabinet Member for Environment and Health, said: “This is a great way to say thank you to those who go that extra mile to make Stafford Borough a better place to live, work and visit. 

“Many of those who do fantastic work for our community are volunteers and often go unnoticed so these awards give us the opportunity to pay tribute to them and demonstrate that we value all that they do.” 

The presentation gets underway at 7pm on Thursday at the White Eagle Club in Stafford.
