6:10pm Tuesday 20th August 2013 in News
THE search is on for Middlesbrough’s Citizen of the Year for 2013.
Local people are being asked to nominate those who they feel have made an outstanding contribution to their community and the town as a whole.
The award is a celebration of good citizenship and public service, and aims to recognise the community heroes who go the extra mile to make a difference for those around them and improve quality of life in the town.
Foster mum Jane Bailey was recently awarded the 2012 accolade by Middlesbrough Mayor Ray Mallon at a special ceremony in the Town Hall.
Mr Mallon said: “The people of this town are its single most valuable resource, and among them are those who have truly gone above and beyond the call of duty.
“Their tireless and often unsung work keeps communities together, helps the young develop and prosper and ensures Middlesbrough has a bright future.
“The Citizen of the Year Award is our way of paying tribute to that work and saying thank you for the very real difference they make.”
Entries will be considered by a panel of judges representing the public and private sectors in the town.
Nomination forms can be downloaded or completed online via the Middlesbrough Council website at www.middlesbrough.gov.uk/citizenoftheyear or call the executive office on 01642-729701.
All nominations should be submitted by Friday, September 27.
