Today marks the launch of the highly anticipated Cirencester Community Awards 2023, a joint initiative by Cirencester Radio and Cirencester Community Development Trust. This prestigious event aims to recognise and celebrate the exceptional contributions made by individuals, charitable organisations, community groups, and clubs to the vibrant local community of Cirencester.
The awards have been carefully designed to encompass the diverse aspects of community support and engagement, with four distinct categories: Cirencester Champion (individual), Team, Sustainability, and Innovation. Each category seeks to acknowledge the outstanding efforts of those who have gone above and beyond to create a positive impact within the community.
Carole Boydell, Chair of Cirencester Radio, expressed her enthusiasm for this collaborative venture, stating, “Our two organisations are excited to take this opportunity to pay tribute to those who are deeply involved in our local community of Cirencester. We believe that it is essential to shine a spotlight on the selfless efforts of these individuals and groups who contribute so much to the betterment of our town.”
The Cirencester Champion Award will recognise an exceptional individual who has demonstrated extraordinary dedication and commitment to the welfare of the community. This category aims to honour those unsung heroes whose efforts often go unnoticed but have made a significant difference in the lives of Cirencester residents.
The Team Award will celebrate the collective power of groups and organisations that work collaboratively to address community needs. This accolade aims to highlight the strength and impact of teamwork and how it can bring about positive change in the local area.
With the increasing focus on environmental responsibility, the Sustainability Award will honour initiatives or projects that prioritise eco-friendly practices and contribute to the overall sustainability and well-being of the community.
The Innovation Award will recognise and applaud the creativity and ingenuity of those who have introduced novel approaches or solutions to address local challenges, fostering positive change and progress in Cirencester.
Nominations for the awards are now open, and the public is encouraged to participate actively in the process of identifying deserving candidates. Anyone can submit nominations through the Cirencester Radio website: CirencesterRadio.co.uk. This provides an excellent opportunity for community members to acknowledge and celebrate the efforts of those who have touched their lives.
The Cirencester Community Awards 2023 promises to be a memorable occasion, not only for the winners but also for the entire community. By recognising and honouring these outstanding individuals and organisations, Cirencester takes a step towards fostering a spirit of community engagement and volunteerism.
As the word spreads about the awards, there is a growing sense of anticipation and excitement within Cirencester, with many eager to see the positive impact this recognition will have on the community as a whole. The awards ceremony is scheduled to take place later this year, providing an opportunity for the community to come together and celebrate the achievements of their fellow residents.
