Erewash Mayor honours caring citizens

Community-minded residents and groups will be honoured for their contribution to society at this year’s Erewash Mayor's Awards.
 
Eleven caring residents and representatives from three local groups will be presented with their awards by the Mayor of Erewash, Councillor Mary Hopkinson, in the Mayor’s Parlour at Ilkeston Town Hall on Tuesday 19 December at 6pm.
 
The awards are to recognise groups or individuals who carry out vital work in their community without expecting anything in return.
 
The judging panel looked at nominations, made by members of the public, for evidence of special qualities and service beyond simply being a ‘good neighbour’ when picking out the award winners. 
 
Councillor Mary Hopkinson, the Mayor of Erewash, says:
 
“Presenting these awards will be one of the highlights of my year in office.  It is a pleasure for me to recognise all the recipients and an honour to personally congratulate and thank them for all that they do for this borough.
 
“I have seen at first hand the work of the countless people in this borough who work so selflessly to help others in so many ways. It is a privilege to be able to present awards to some of those residents and organisations.”
