Nominations for the annual Waimakariri District Council Community Service Awards have opened.
The popular awards, now into their 27th year, provide residents of the district with an opportunity to recognise voluntary service from their peers in the fields of the arts, culture, education, health, welfare, sport, recreation or youth development.
The nominations can be made by going to the Waimakariri District Council website in the link below and download the form, or forms can be collected from the council service centres or libraries in Rangiora, Kaiapoi and Oxford.
Nominations close on Monday July 24.
Last year, 30 people were honoured for their service to the community. These awards were gained for a wide range of contributions across the Waimakariri district.
Nominations can only be made by those residing within the district, and require the support of two residents to be eligible.
