It’s time for local people to nominate someone they know who volunteers their time to help local communities for the Clackmannanshire Citizen of the Year award.
The winner of the award, which is sponsored by the Lord Lieutenant's Trust, will be announced at a ceremony on 10th March.
The Council is also looking for nominations for Young Citizen of the Year, a category which is being awarded for the eighth year. Young Citizen of the Year provides an opportunity to recognise an inspirational local person, under the age of 18, who has enriched the lives of others or has been selfless in their actions.
This is the 17th year that the Provost of Clackmannanshire will host the ceremony to recognise the dedication and commitment that local people make to help improve the quality of life throughout the county.
Provost Tina Murphy said: "I know that there are many residents in Clackmannanshire who dedicate time and effort to make the lives of their fellow citizens better. So I’d encourage everyone in Clackmannanshire to think about nominating these tireless workers to help us all give them a big thank you for everything that they do. I’d also like to see the hard work that makes us so proud of our local young people recognised, so please think about nominating somebody for the Young Citizen of the Year. We would also welcome nominations for citizens that have perhaps been nominated but have not won this prestigious award.”
Alex Harvey is the current Citizen of the Year and Katherine Martin is the current Young Citizen of the Year.
Nomination forms are available on the Council website with the closing date for nominations is 27th January 2020. Further information is available by calling 01259 450000 or by emailing email@example.com
