These awards recognise contributions from some of the many individuals and groups who work tirelessly to assist others who may be more vulnerable or less fortunate - quite simply making life better for our community. 

We are sorry that due to coronavirus restrictions we are unable to celebrate in the normal way but please be assured the work you do truly makes for a better society, and as a council we are extremely proud and grateful for the rich culture of volunteering across our borough – Thank you.
