• Nominations for Bovey Tracey Community Champion 2021 Award

Bovey Tracey Town Council’s Annual Community Awards aim to acknowledge and celebrate the achievements of people and businesses in Bovey Tracey and Heathfield that might otherwise go unrecognised.

This year the Council has decided to seek nominations for a person, group or business that has made a significant difference for others in our community during the past year, particularly in the difficult circumstances of the Covid-19 pandemic. If you know such a candidate, why not nominate them for this award?

The award is open to residents, employees, businesses, and voluntary groups based in the parish of Bovey Tracey, which includes Heathfield.

Nominations may be submitted by residents, colleagues from work or voluntary groups, visitors or customers who have a good experience of the nominees activities in the parish.

Nominees must live or work in the parish of Bovey Tracey and must agree to being nominated. Each nomination must have a proposer and seconder. The award winner will be announced at the Annual Town Meeting on 31st March 2021, further details of which will be announced in due course.

The Community Champion 2021 Qualifying Criteria

This special award is for someone or a group of individuals who have made a significant contribution to the parish over the past year. There are members of our community who have made extraordinary efforts to help others in the difficult circumstances of the Corona virus pandemic, by going “over and above” for the benefit of the wider community.

However, the council does not want to define these criteria too tightly, as it believes it is up to the people of the parish to assess why their nominee justifies the nomination, and to make the case for them.
