City Council seeks Chelmsford's Champions

Chelmsford City Council is now accepting award nominations for people who go the extra mile to look after their local environment.

The Chelmsford Champions awards have been developed to recognise and thank the extraordinary individuals that make Chelmsford officially the Best Place to Live in the East of England (Sunday Times).

Open to anyone who lives in Chelmsford and the surrounding borough, the scheme invites nominations for those who have demonstrated commitment to making a positive difference to their neighbourhood. This could be anything from litter picking and planting flowers to doing something creative or leading others to get stuck into improving their local area. Prizes will be presented to the selected Champions at a special ceremony in August.

The awards are part of Love Your Chelmsford, a programme that celebrates the local environment and provides opportunities for residents to get involved, including river clean-ups, volunteering, fun events and competitions.

Councillor Malcolm Sismey, Cabinet Member responsible for Love Your Chelmsford, said, "We know that there are wonderful people in every community who go out of their way to make their local area as attractive, welcoming and pleasant as possible. These awards are a way of thanking those residents. I look forward to reading the entries and I encourage as many nominations as possible."

The closing date for nominations is Saturday 30 June. To nominate a Community Champion, please email the Love Your Chelmsford team at http://lyc@chelmsford.gov.uk, call 01245 615800 or message http://@LoveYourChelmsford on Facebook.
