Nominations for the annual Community Service Awards open

The popular awards, now into their 26th year, provide residents of the district with an opportunity to recognise voluntary service from their peers in the fields of the arts, culture, education, health, welfare, sport, recreation or youth development.

Such is the level of interest, last year 20 people were honoured for their service to the community. These awards were gained for a wide range of contributions across the Waimakariri district.

Nominations can only be made by those residing within the district, and require the support of two residents to be eligible.

The nomination forms can be downloaded from the Council website (, or collected from the Council Service Centres or libraries in Rangiora, Kaiapoi and Oxford.

The deadline for nominations is Friday July 1.

The recipients will be revealed at a function to be held at the end of August.
