Nominations are now being accepted for a major scheme that recognises Sefton residents who make a positive difference to life in their local communities.
Citizens 4 Good is a joint initiative from Sefton Council for Voluntary Service (CVS) and the Mayor of Sefton’s Office which recognises local people for the good deeds, kindness and support that they provide to other members of the community.
This is the first round of nominations since the start of the Coronavirus pandemic, which resulted in the scheme being put on hold.
People can nominate any Sefton resident who they think makes a difference to the people around them. They may go that extra mile to be a great neighbour, help to organise a local community group or enhance life in the area in another way that deserves recognition.
Mike Howlett, Senior Citizenship and Volunteering Officer for Sefton CVS, commented: “Since launching the scheme in 2017, Citizens 4 Good has recognised more than 100 people for their kind acts and support for their local communities.
“Over the last two years, during the Coronavirus pandemic, we have heard so many examples of how community members have stepped up to help their neighbours, so I’m sure people won’t be short of local people to nominate.”
Shortlisted nominees will be invited to a celebration event where they will be presented with a certificate by the Mayor of Sefton, Cllr Clare Louise Carragher.
The deadline for nominations is Monday 4th April, with the celebration event taking place later that month at Bootle Town Hall .
