Have your say

PEOPLE are being asked to nominate their local heroes.

Fareham Borough Council has opened the nominations for the Citizen and Young Citizen of Honour Awards 2017.

The awards, which have been running for the past three years, provide the chance for Fareham’s unsung stars to have their chance to shine.

Young citizens, those aged under 18, can be nominated for showing outstanding bravery, helping others at school/college, coping with something life-changing or giving unpaid voluntary service.

Adult citizens, who are over 18 can be nominated for providing regular voluntary service to benefit the community, giving up time to look after the environment or caring for an individual with a long-term illness.

The winners will be elected at next May’s mayor making ceremony after being chosen by the council’s executive in March. To nominate your citizen of honour go to fareham.gov.uk/about_the_council/citizen_awards.
