Dorset Council Chairman Encourages Us To Nominate Volunteers For Award

Dorset Council wants to recognise members of our community who played an important role during the pandemic.

At the height of the crisis, 3,000 volunteers gave up their time to support fellow residents. More than 160 groups sprang up overnight.

Cllr Val Pothecary

The Council wants you to tell them about heroic community groups and individuals, aged both under and over 25. Award recipients will receive a letter of thanks and certificate from the Chairman of Dorset Council, Cllr Val Pothecary. Val tells Alfred why it’s important to recognise local heroes.

You can nominate on the Dorset Council website until 31st January.
