PEOPLE are being asked to nominate youngsters and adults for a 2012 citizen of honour awards.

Fareham Borough Council is seeking nominations for kind-hearted people for both the citizen of honour and young citizen of honour awards.

The awards recognise people in the community who have carried out an outstanding act of bravery or put other people ahead of themselves.

Councillor Sean Woodward, leader of the council, said: ‘The citizen of honour awards are the perfect way for someone to nominate a resident of Fareham who regularly puts others before themselves, has helped others and the community, or may have shown an act of bravery, to be recognised for their commitment.’

There are three different categories of nomination which include the citizen of honour award for adults, the young citizen of the year for children aged between four and 11 and the same award for those aged between 12 and 18.

Winners will attend the mayormaking event in May to receive their award badges and certificates and will receive invitations as VIPs to a number of civic events, a family ticket to the gala performance of the Christmas panto and £15 in vouchers.

The closing date for nominations is Friday, January 31.
