– those nominated must be able to attend the community awards presentations once again to be held at The Swan PH. Sherburn. 6.30pm – 8.30pm. Friday 19th July 2019.

Application forms can be obtained in the first instance by contacting David Brook by emailing mrdavidbrook@yahoo.co.uk

A panel of judges will then meet within 6 weeks to discuss nominations.
