Do you know a special young person who has made a unique contribution to the Cranbrook community? Would you like to see them get the recognition they deserve?
This is your last chance to put forward names for the Young Cranbrook Citizen of the Year Award. We are looking for any young person – or group of young people – who have gone the extra mile to make Cranbrook a better place to live. The winners will not only receive a trophy and a certificate, but also a £100 prize to spend as they like!
Launched in 2015 by the Cranbrook Herald and Cranbrook Town Council (CTC), the award is given annually to the young person – or people – who has made the biggest contribution to the Cranbrook community during the year.
The first winners were 12-year-old Cranbrook Education Campus pupils Katie Coles and Paige Simpson, who raised more than £100 for Cancer Awareness Day by organising fundraising events at their school. The second was 10-year-old Mathilda Donnelly, a pupil from Rockbeare Primary School, who, on her own initiative, picked up litter from the Country Park and then devised a poster campaign to keep the town tidy.
This year’s judging panel comprises Kevin Blakey (CTC’s chairman), Andrew Coley (Cranbrook Herald’s content editor) and the Reverend Lythan Nevard (Cranbrook’s minister) Nominations close at 11am on Monday 19 March, and the winner will be informed by Monday, April 9.
