Nominations are now open for the annual Town Awards and Knutsford Town Council are encouraging everyone to nominate exceptional members of the community to be recognised for their efforts in contributing to the local community.
The Town Awards will be presented as part of the Annual Town Meeting taking place on Thursday 7th March. The Town Awards aim to highlight and celebrate both volunteers and local businesses for their dedication and contributions to benefit the community over the last year. This year’s awards will be hosted at St John the Baptist’s Church.
There are four awards categories:
- Civic Award made to an individual (or group of individuals) who give their time to the community.
- Business Award goes to a local business for their work engaging and contributing to the community.
- Community Award goes to a community organisation to recognise the work they do in the community.
- Youth Award recognises the members of our community 21 and under.
Three Civic Awards are presented by the Town Council, as well as one Business Award, one Community Award and one Youth Award. Commendations and special awards may also be made.
