You chance to put forward your nominations for Community Heroes in Redditch

Redditch Editorial 13th May, 2024   0

A NEW set of awards to recognise those combating anti-social behaviour in Bromsgrove and Redditch are now open for nominations.

The awards have four categories to recognise the ‘great work’ individuals, communities, and businesses in the area are doing to reduce anti-social behaviour.

Bromsgrove District and Redditch Borough Councils are launching the Community Safety Partnership’s Community Hero Awards.

Three of the four awards will be given in recognition of a specific project or piece of work that has supported the reduction of anti-social behaviour within a community and has resulted in people feeling safer.

A Youth Award will be open to young people aged between 18 and 25 and organisations who work with young people.

A Communities Award will be open to any adult or group within a community.

And a Business Award will be open to any company operating in the District.

The fourth award is the Extra Mile Award. This will be given to recognise an extraordinary person or group whose actions have gone above and beyond to reduce anti-social behaviour within their community.

Chief executive of the two councils and chair of the North Worcestershire Community safety Partnership, Sue Hanley, said: “These new awards are designed to recognise the excellent and really important work that is happening at a grassroot levels in our communities across Redditch and Bromsgrove.

“We want to honour all those who help make our communities feel safer for all those who live, work, and play in the area by actively working to reduce anti-social behaviour and its negative impact on our neighbourhoods.”

Nominations opened on May 3 and close on May 31.

All nominees will be invited to a presentation evening between 6pm and 8.30pm on July 4 which will be ‘National Community Heroes Day’.
