Good Deed Nominations Sought
Nominations are being called for Christchurch City Council Civic Awards for people and organisations that carry out good deeds in the city.
The Council has presented the awards annually for the past 13 years. Council administrator of the awards, Dave Adamson, says they recognise the good works of the “unsung heroes” of the city.
“If it were not for the many people and organisations in our city that work voluntarily and selflessly, our society would almost grind to a halt,” he says.
The award categories are recreation, youth activities, social welfare, educational services, cultural affairs, religious affairs, and community affairs. Also, any other voluntary services that “contribute to furthering the vision of Christchurch” can be nominated.
Individuals, societies or clubs and such like can be nominated.
Nominations close on Friday, 9 August 2002.
Award winners receive a framed certificate and a boxed medallion from Christchurch Mayor Garry Moore.
Nomination forms can be obtained from the Civic Offices in Tuam Street, Council Service Centres and City Libraries.
