Stay Safe Be Kind Community Response Award

Closed 16 Oct 2020

Opened 28 Aug 2020


Earlier this year partners came together to recognise the unsung heroes who contribute to making Whitmore Reans and the surrounding area a positive place to live by giving out awards celebrating everything from being a good neighbour, promoting community spirit, being an eco-warrior or inspiring others.

In recognition of how the local community has responded to COVID-19 the Council’s Community Safety Team is now launching a new award. The Stay Safe Be Kind Community Response Award will recognise an individual or group who has taken action since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic to support their neighbours, local community, or vulnerable people in Whitmore Reans and the surrounding area.  This can be an activity on a single street or across the whole area, it can be responding to specific needs that have arisen as a direct result of the virus or it can involve actions that have positively promoted community spirit during this challenging period.

The closing date for nominations is Friday 16th October 2020.

*Please note that all nominees must be living, working or actively involved in activity based in Whitmore Reans or the surrounding area*.
