Still time to name Gwent Active Citizen
11:50am Tuesday 19th March 2013 in Gwent news
THERE is only one day left to recognise people who have shown an act of bravery or work hard for the people in their neighbourhood.
Nominations for the Argus Active Citizen Award have to be in by tomorrow at 5pm.
For the second year, the South Wales Argus is teaming up with Gwent Police to look for someone who deserves to claim the Argus Argus Active Citizen Award at the upcoming Gwent Police Awards. Last year’s winner was Lee Harvey from Malpas in Newport.
He picked up the award for setting up a Neighbourhood Watch after his family home was burgled in 2010. It led to dozens of people going to monthly meetings and expanded so 600 homes got newsletters. Anyone can nominate a member of the public for the Argus Active Citizen Award and there is no age limit.
We are looking for the unsung heroes of Gwent who have done their bit to help out in their communities.
The winner will be chosen by a panel of judges, including Argus deputy editor Nicole Garnon. Aspecial certificate will be presented to the winner at an awards ceremony at the Drybridge Centre, Monmouth, on May 8.
To make a nomination, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org, including ‘Argus Active Citizen Award’ in the subject line or write to: Ben Frampton, South Wales Argus, Cardiff Road, Newport, NP20 3QN.
Include your name, contact information, who you are nominating and why.
