The chair’s community awards were established in 2003 to recognise and celebrate the valuable contribution local unpaid volunteers make to life in South Gloucestershire and have since become an annual event.

Would you like to thank a volunteer who has gone the extra mile? Or an unsung hero?

Nominations are now open

The current Chair of the Council, Erica Williams, is asking you to nominate your local ‘community heroes’ – people who have made a difference to your community. There are a number of suggested areas of contribution such as community development, promoting equality, arts, sports, play, environment, working with older or young people, advice and advocacy and being a good neighbour.

New for 2017 now taking group nominations
