“I’ve previously observed the success of these awards and the sheer elation and gratitude of those who are nominated, and I think it has become an important civic function.

“I would urge anyone who knows of a bright star in the area to get themselves online and submit a nomination. This is about celebrating the spirit of our borough.”

This year, there are eight categories and each one has a presenter who will champion their category, these include:

  1. Mayor’s Community Impact Award
