Cllr Mrs Butcher said: “The Citizen of the Year Awards are the ideal opportunity to give special recognition to those who deserve it. In particular, I personally will be looking out for outstanding young people who have gone above and beyond in our community, as well as those who make a big difference to the lives of younger people.

“There are so many people around us who do amazing things in the district so please help us give recognition to them. We look forward to reading your nominations!”
