Nominations open for Mayor’s Civic Awards

People are being asked to nominate unsung heroes in the borough for a Civic Award.

The awards are presented by the Mayor of Dudley, Councillor Andrea Goddard, at the first citizen’s annual charity ball in April.

The public have until Sunday March 3 to nominate individuals and groups who go above and beyond in their communities for the awards, which are this year in association with Midtherm.

The winners and runners-up will be announced at The Mayor’s Ball and Civic Awards.

The event will take place on Friday April 19 at the Copthorne Hotel in Brierley Hill.   

The annual ball raises thousands of pounds for the Mayor’s chosen charities each year and award winners will have the chance to celebrate their achievements with distinguished guests.

Local businesses have backed the awards, which are all named after heroes of the borough. They are:

  • The Duncan Edwards award for sport
  • The Cedric Hardwicke award for arts
  • The Frank Foley award for community spirit
  • The Thomas Attwood award for education
  • The Mike Holder award for business
  • The William Shenstone award for environment

The awards are all sponsored by local businesses including Jewson and HP & Son Restoration and Construction. Councillor Andrea Goddard, the Mayor of Dudley, said:

“The Civic Awards are an ideal opportunity to reward people who have gone above and beyond helping others within our community.

“It only takes a few minutes to nominate someone, and it’s worth it to see these dedicated people getting the recognition they deserve with one of our civic awards.”
