Nominations can now be made for the 2019 East Riding of Yorkshire Council Chairman’s Awards.

The annual awards, which will be held at Bridlington Spa in May, recognise people, businesses and projects that have helped improve the East Riding over the last year.

There are four award categories:

  • community – recognises groups and individuals for the contribution to improving lives of those living in the East Riding with a non-commercial project.
  • built heritage – celebrates private homes, new builds or business premises that have been sympathetically renovated and/or restored
  • business – recognises businesses that have helped the economy flourish
  • sport – celebrates local talent and commitment to sports clubs and activities.

Nominees can only be entered for one category and a previous award winner cannot be nominated in the same category for a period of three years but can be entered for another.

The awards will be presented by Councillor Margaret Chadwick in what will be her last engagement as chairman before she ends her year in office.

She said: “I’d urge people to think about their communities and think if there are people they know of who deserve some recognition for the work they do to make the areas they live in a better place.”
