YEOVIL NEWS: Nominations wanted for the Mayor’s Silver Salver Award

YEOVIL Town Council has asked for nominations for individuals or organisations who deserve to win the 2018 Mayor’s Award.

A Silver Salver will be awarded to an individual or an organisation providing a tangible service to the community, as a small token of recognition and thanks on behalf of the Mayor and the town.

The award is not intended for people who earn their living from their services but who provide a service out of the goodness of their hearts.

Last year’s winner was awarded to Liz Pike for developing and promoting the arts and culture in Yeovil, whilst past recipients include: Pete Ridler for his many years of service to the Westfield Community, Beryl Garton for her continuous work for the Good Fellowship Club and Milford Hall Community Association, Patricia Rendall who has given 50 years’ service to the Yeovil Branch of St John Ambulance and Graham Voizey for his 36 years service with the Yeovil Boys Brigade.

The Mayor, Cllr Darren Shutler, said: “There must be lots of people in the Yeovil Town area who have not been publicly recognised for the work they do for the town.

“I would encourage people to take this opportunity to put forward the names of friends or originations who selflessly undertake good work for the town.”

Those nominated need not actually live in Yeovil but must be active within the town.

The closing date for nominations for the 2018 award is Friday, April 6, 2018, and they should be sent to Amanda Card, Town Clerk, Yeovil Town Council, Town House, 19 Union Street, Yeovil, Somerset BA20 1PQ, from whom any further information may be obtained. For more details phone 01935-382424.
