REMARKABLE citizens from across the district are set to be rewarded at an upcoming awards ceremony set up by West Lindsey District Council.

More than 20 unsung heroes have been nominated for the first West Lindsey Community Awards.

The West Lindsey District Council awards recognise people who devote time and effort into making their neighbourhood a better place.

A council spokesman said: “People from all walks of life and all corners of the district have been put forward to be recognised.”

Coun Jeff Summers, who suggested starting the awards, is really pleased at the number of nominations sent in.

“I am pleased that the community have got behind this and been so keen to recognise the work of people in their community,” he said.

Achievements in the ‘Best Volunteer of the Year’ category include people who have taken on a great variety of volunteer roles and help out at events to help keep up community spirit.

The awards ceremony will be held on Monday 10th December at 7pm at the Christmas Council meeting in the Guildhall, Gainsborough.
