Craig Gibbons 14th Nov, 2017

SCOUT leaders, litter pickers and carers are among the dedicated volunteers nominated as part of this year’s Our Malvern Hills Community Awards.

The awards are now in their second year having been launched in 2016 by Malvern Hills District Council as way of recognising the contribution volunteers make to improving the lives and well-being of residents.

Almost 60 nominations were received and 20 have been shortlisted for an award in six categories – Safe and Sound, Improving Lives, Action in the Community, Cleaner and Greener, Young Person’s and Business in the Community.

The winners will be announced at a ceremony on Wednesday, November 29 at the HDAnywhere Community Stadium, the home of Malvern Town FC.

The creation of the awards is part of the district council’s five year plan and commitment to building stronger and healthier communities.

Coun David Watkins, portfolio holder for healthier communities on Malvern Hills District Council, said: “After receiving such a huge response from the community during the first year of the awards we were delighted to receive similar interest this time around.

“The number of nominations really emphasises just how important the work of these individuals are to the community.

“These awards are our opportunity to say thank you to these individuals for everything they do and demonstrate how proud we are of the people who make us proud of our place.”
