The Lifetime Achievement Award is an award in recognition of someone’s outstanding contribution to the community that have made a significant impact on the lives of others

Senior Citizen of the Year Award

This award is aimed at recognising those young at heart members of the community who go the extra mile. Perhaps they excel at a hobby, have extraordinary talents or give up time for someone else. Perhaps they are just a happy 60-something who always wears a smile. Nominees for this award must be 60.

Health Professional/Carer of the Year Award

This award will go to a medical professional or carer who has demonstrated their total commitment to working hard and tirelessly in their community to make an incredible difference to the lives of others.

Family of the Year Award

This award recognises the importance of Family and the effort needed from all members to keep a family strong - if you know of a great family then we want to hear all about them!

This award is open to a young person (aged 13 or over) who has shown exceptional courage, bravery and inspiration in the face of adversity - someone with a fighting spirit who refuses to be beaten

Caring Neighbour Award

This award will go to someone whose actions have had a positive impact on their neighbourhood or their actual neighbours. This may be through good deeds on a regular basis, or simply an individual whose community-minded attitude brightens up someone else’s day.​
