"My place in Stockport" award scheme nominations to be in by 18/12/08

Stockport's extraordinary citizens are to be recognised for the second year in a row, through a boroughwide awards scheme.
 

 

'My Place in Stockport' is the Council’s citizen award scheme which recognises individuals, groups or teams that go out of their way to make Stockport a better place.
And now the Council, its partners, and award sponsors are asking the public and Stockport Express & Times readers for their suggestions as to who should be honoured with a ‘My Place’ award.
The awards are part of the Stockport Community Pride campaign, launched by the Council to encourage a stronger sense of pride and community spirit in our borough.
Does someone you know, or have heard of, help make Stockport special? Is there an individual, a group, a volunteer, or perhaps a local personality, or someone else who deserves recognition for good and community spirit?
The list of award categories:
•   Ambassador for Stockport - Rewarding someone who has helped put Stockport on the map.
•   Best Street - Rewarding the residents who help make their street a better place to live.
•   Children’s Champion – Rewarding a person or group of people who influence children’s day to day lives in a positive way.
•   Citizen of the Year - Rewarding adults who help their community in lots of different ways.
•   Community-spirited Business - Rewarding the Stockport business that puts a lot back into the community, be it through fundraising, caring services or staff initiatives.
•   Good Neighbour - Rewarding those people who go out of their way to be the best neighbour possible.
•   Green and Glorious - Rewarding a group or person that is responsible for a great community clean-up.
•   Life changing - Rewarding someone who has turned their life around against the odds.
•   Sports Personality - Rewarding those involved in sport in Stockport.
•   Volunteering Champion - Rewarding individuals or groups of people who make a real difference to Stockport, such as resident associations and community groups.
•   Young Citizen of the Year - Rewarding young people under the age of 18 that help their community in lots of different ways.
To enter, fill in a nomination form and post it FREEPOST to: Business Reply Service Licence No. SK255, ‘My Place’ Awards, Room 206, Stockport Town Hall, Stockport Council, FREEPOST, Stockport SK1 3YQ.
You can pick up a nomination leaflet in local libraries and Stockport Direct Centres, or go to www.myplacestockport.org (free internet access at all Stockport libraries) and send in nominations online.
The final date for nominations is Thursday 18 December 2008. Winners will be celebrated at an awards event in March 2009 in Stockport Town Hall.
Councillor Dave Goddard, Leader of Stockport Council, said: “The My Place in Stockport Awards 2008 proved an outstanding success, so much so that we have decided to run them again in 2009. Stockport is a great place to live and work and is home to some very special people. We want to make sure that our special citizens are recognized and rewarded for the genuine difference they make to our local community and these awards provide the perfect opportunity.”
All nominations, in the different categories, will be judged by a panel of representatives from Stockport Council and partners.
