Do you know a local person or organisation that goes the extra mile ? If so, this is your perfect chance to celebrate their work through the Good Citizens Awards.

There are four categories:

  • Citizen of the Year
  • Young Citizen of the Year (aged 21 or below)
  • Community Group of the Year
  • Couple/Pair of the Year.

Winners will enjoy a VIP day out at the Lincolnshire Show with a guest, as well as being awarded a framed certificate.

The last award event was 2019 at which time the winners were:

  • Rob Turner of Caistor – Citizen of the Year.
  •  Jack Covill-Lowndes from Wainfleet – Young Citizen of the Year.
  • Springline Good Neighbours Scheme – Community Group of the Year.
  • Joy and Doug Rodwell from Hemingby near Horncastle – Couple/Pair of the Year.

There was also a special award for Community Leadership which was won by Andrew and Heather Inkley of Spalding.

The kind of unpaid work the organisers would like to hear about includes:

  • making sure neighbours are cared for
  • raising funds for charity
  • organising events
  • supporting good causes
  • looking after the environment

The closing date for 2022 entries is Friday 6th May 2022 and nominations can be made HERE.
