Record number of nominations for Civic Awards

civic awards 3

There have been a record number of nominations for 2015 Southwark Civic Awards – there were about 125 applications this year! Thanks to everyone who nominated someone who has contributed so much to our borough. I worked with 100 community champions and applied for awards for 20 of them.

As a Court Member of Southwark Civic Association I, along with 25 others, reviewed all the applications. I excused myself from the process for the applications I nominated and didn’t provide any input on these ones.

It was a difficult process with so many worthy people put forward for awards. About 60 nominations were recommended to Southwark Council for award consideration. The winners will be announced later in May.
