TROWBRIDGE Town Council is asking the public to nominate residents who ‘go the extra mile’ for their community as part of an event it is running.

The council is asking for Trowbridge locals to put forward individuals, groups, schools, clubs, organisations or businesses for seven award categories to be presented at this year’s town gathering at the civic centre on May 8.

The awards include club of the year, spirit of youth, public sector hero, charity fundraiser of the year, community champion, green award and mayor’s award.

All nominees will be invited to the event, where Mayor Deborah Halik will announce the winner and invite them to say a few words.

To nominate someone email before the deadline on April 27 at midday.

The event runs from 6.30-9.30pm and for more information call 01225 765072.
