From the District Council Website:
As 2015 draws to a close, the time has come once again to nominate your Citizen of the Year. And this time the awards are even more exciting, with some brand new group categories to choose from!
The Citizen of the Year Awards are the perfect opportunity to recognise and acknowledge local groups and people for their valuable work and outstanding achievements. From helping our District?s children to providing essential services to the vulnerable, and from helping neighbours to tirelessly working in the community, we want to hear about those extraordinary groups and individuals that really make a difference to the community.
The Chairman of Rochford District Council, Cllr Mrs Heather Glynn, will judge the nominations and present the awards at a special Citizen of the Year Awards Ceremony. She said: ?The Citizen of the Year Awards are the ideal opportunity to give special recognition to those who deserve it.
?This year I wanted to do things a bit differently by opening up the opportunity to the many local groups and clubs which do wonderful things for the district. Therefore this year?s categories include Charitable Group and Youth Group, as well as Individual?s Achievement of the Year.
?Please help me give recognition to the amazing groups and people we are lucky enough to have in the district. I look forward to reading your nominations!?

? Individual?s Achievement of the Year (an individual of any age, who lives in the district)
