The Council holds a Community Service Awards ceremony every year to
recognise people who have made great contributions to our district. Up
to 12 Community Service Awards are presented each year.
Who Can Be Nominated?
who has carried out significant voluntary service in the Waimakariri
District in the areas of the arts, culture, education, health,
recreation, sport, welfare or youth can be nominated by any two
citizens of the district. Often these are people who prefer to not be in
the spotlight, but who are champions in our community because of their
years of work behind the scenes.
People who have received royal
or national honours for their service or actions are also eligible to be
considered for a Community Service Award.
This year's Community Service Awards ceremony were held on Wednesday 28 August 2013.
