Chairman of the council Sue Schneider will present each of the recipients with a commemorative framed certificate.

Cllr Schneider said: “All of these people have made a real difference in their communities and they should receive recognition for that.

“The community achievement awards are one way of giving these fantastic people the credit they deserve – it will be an honour to meet and present each of them with a special certificate.

“As well as providing them with recognition, these awards are also a way of thanking these individuals for the contributions they’ve made to their communities; not just from the council, but from the many people who’ve benefited from their efforts.”
