West Lindsey District Council was delighted to host its sixth annual Community Awards on Wednesday, which continues to see great support from the local community.
Over the last few years the awards has been a catalyst for raising the profile of the work of the many volunteers, community groups and local heroes – who ask for nothing in return. But their hard work and dedication has not got unnoticed – as they have been nominated for the community awards by the people whose lives they have enriched and supported.
Chairman of the Council, Councillor Pat Mewis, welcomed everyone to the West Lindsey Community Awards 2019.
She said: “It was good to see so many people at the awards ceremony and I thank all the nominees and their guests for attending. These awards are a way to honour the outstanding members of our district’s communities and to recognise the numerous people who give up much of their free time to make West Lindsey a better place. I would also like to express my gratitude to The Glanford and Lindsey Lions, who have once again sponsored the trophies.”This year’s awards included new categories, providing more opportunities to celebrate West Lindsey’s superstars from all areas of the community.
Executive Director of Resources at West Lindsey District Council, Ian Knowles, congratulated all the nominees. He said: “Every member of the public nominated for the awards has given back so much to their communities and should be hugely congratulated, and I thank you for everything you do.”
Guests enjoyed drinks and canapés whilst being treated to delightful tunes from the Queen Elizabeth High School band.
The Community Awards Panel is made up of the following councillors: Cllr Pat Mewis, Cllr Judy Rainsforth, Cllr Sheila Bibb, Cllr David Cotton and Cllr Giles McNeill.
