THE PRIDE of Mac­cles­field will be hon­oured at a civic awards cer­e­mony by the mayor.

Mayor of Mac­cles­field coun Liz Durham has an­nounced the se­cond year of the Civic Awards for Mac­cles­field, fol­low­ing the suc­cess of the scheme’s in­au­gu­ral year in 2015 which was pi­loted by the Char­ter Trustees.

She is look­ing for nom­i­na­tions for peo­ple across the town who have made a dif­fer­ence in the com­mu­nity.

Coun Durham says she is keen to recog­nise and cel­e­brate those peo­ple who make a dif­fer­ence to Mac­cles­field by vol­un­teer­ing their time to pro­vide com­mu­nity based ser­vices, im­prove ameni­ties or help oth­ers that are in need.

She said: “The hard work and ded­i­ca­tion of vol­un­teers makes a pos­i­tive dif­fer­ence for many; im­prov­ing lo­cal co­he­sion, feel­ings of pride and com­mu­nity spirit.

“The Civic Awards is a mar­vel­lous op­por­tu­nity to re­ward vol­un­teers who re­ally do in­vest in Mac­cles­field.

“I am very much look­ing for­ward to re­ceiv­ing the nom­i­na­tions and learn­ing more about the good work tak­ing place in the town.”

All nom­i­na­tions will be checked for el­i­gi­bil­ity be­fore be­ing re­viewed by the Mayor of Mac­cles­field and Civic Award se­lec­tion com­mit­tee. Win­ners will be in­vited to an Award Cer­e­mony in April 2016, held in the grand As­sem­bly Room of the Mac­cles­field Town Hall.

The Awards will not only high­light the vol­un­teers’ con­tri­bu­tions but also pub­li­cise com­mu­nity led schemes in Mac­cles­field.

The el­i­gi­bil­ity for nom­i­na­tions is that the con­tri­bu­tion from the nom­i­nee is not per­formed un­der the au­thor­ity of a vol­un­tary or pri­vate or­gan­i­sa­tion, it is solely to the ben­e­fit of the Mac­cles­field com­mu­nity and the nom­i­nee must still be in­volved in the ac­tiv­ity for which they are nom­i­nated.

Each nom­i­nee must be pro­posed by two sep­a­rate in­di­vid­u­als and there can be no self-nom­i­na­tions or nom­i­na­tions from rel­a­tives.

The nom­i­nee must have made a sig­nif­i­cant and sus­tained con­tri­bu­tion to the Mac­cles­field com­mu­nity.

Win­ners will be no­ti­fied three to four weeks be­fore the Award Cer­e­mony.

For a full set of in­struc­tions and how to en­ter nom­i­na­tions please email civic@ mac­cles­field- tc. gov.uk or call 01625 374142.

The clos­ing date for nom­i­na­tions is Fe­bru­ary 19 and the awards cer­e­mony is on April 10.
