Do you know someone who has contributed to the success of the local community?

Now is your chance to nominate them for the 2019 Eilean a' Cheò Civic Awards!

Communities across Skye and Raasay have until Friday 22 November to get their entries in for the awards.

This is the ninth year of the Awards which are organised by the Ward 10 Highland Councillors to recognise people from all age groups and walks of life who have contributed to the success and wellbeing of their local communities.

This year’s award categories are:

Sports
Arts/Music
Environment
Community
Enterprise
Young People

All nominees must be resident on the Isle of Skye or Raasay and be able to demonstrate their actions or activities have resulted in a significant benefit and deserve recognition.

Councillors will then consider all applications received and awards will be presented at a ceremony held in Portree at the Ward Forum on Monday 9th December 2019.

Chair of the Isle of Skye and Raasay Committee, Councillor John Gordon said: "We’re inviting people to forward the name of someone or a community group who they feel deserves recognition for the work they do and the contribution to the lives of others that they make.

"Often such people work quietly behind the scenes without a fuss.

"These Civic Awards are the ideal opportunity for their efforts to be officially recognised and for us to show our appreciation."

Nomination forms are now available on The Highland Council’s website here: https://www.highland.gov.uk/downloads/file/16831/civic_award_application_and_guidance

Completed forms should be returned to the Ward Manager Willie MacKinnon by the 22 November 2019. This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
