Nominations for the 2016 Longman Awards are officially open!
These signature local awards celebrate individuals, groups and businesses that have made an outstanding contribution to helping others.
There are seven categories of awards, but the emphasis is on giving back – with volunteers, seniors and community groups prominent among those recognised.
The awards night is always an occasion to remember and I encourage you to nominate someone you know who is a great local champion and unsung hero.
It really is our chance to come together as a community and show how much we appreciate them.
Please get in early with your nomination - it will take only five minutes and self-nominations are also welcome.
Nominations close May 10, with the presentation ceremony to be held on Friday evening, June 3.
