Chairman’s awards

Residents can now nominate for 2011 East Riding of Yorkshire Council’s Chairman’s Awards.

The annual awards are given to individuals, businesses and projects that have helped to improve the East Riding over the past year. The awards are split into four categories- community, built heritage, environment and business.

The community category recognises groups and individuals for their contribution to improving the lives of those in the East Riding with a non-commercial project.

Built heritage celebrates private homes, or business premises that have been sympathetically renovated and restored.

The environment award is for projects that have made an impact in the environment. Nominations for the business award are invited from businesses that have helped the economy flourish.

The top entries in each category will be invited to an awards ceremony.

Previous winners in the region include Summit Media (Yorkshire), who are based at North Cliffe and Everthorpe. People can also nominate council employees or teams for a chairman’s commendation for those who have delivered excellent service.

To submit a nomination for the awards visit www.eastriding.gov.uk/chairmansawards or ring Sarah Asquith, civic officer on (01482) 393260.

The closing date is 31 January.
