Community litter champs praised by Mayor
Community-spirited volunteers, who turn out in all weathers to litter pick across the borough, have been thanked and praised by Mayor Cllr Stephen Woodliffe.
He said their contribution led to the town and borough looking so much better, and better than many other places he visited.
The community litter champions act as individuals or in groups keeping the town and all areas of the borough clean and tidy.
He welcomed them into the council chamber to thank them for their continuing efforts.
If you want to be a community litter champion please contact Emma Butler on 01205 314383 or Jen Moore on 01205 314583 or email firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com The council administers the litter pricking and supplies equipment.
Each year Boston Borough Council makes awards to individuals or organisations for their outstanding service to the community and nominations for the 2017 awards are now being sought.
Nominations, in the form of a written submission outlining the grounds upon which it is considered that an individual or organisation should be considered for an award, should be submitted to Lorraine Bush, Democratic Services Manager at Boston Borough Council, by Friday, January 27, 2017 (email: firstname.lastname@example.org). To avoid any personal embarrassment it is preferable if the nominees are not informed of their nomination at this stage and, whilst it is expected that in many instances the awards will be based on voluntary service, this is not essential.
After January 27, the appointed panel will consider the nominations received and, depending upon the number of nominations, prepare a shortlist for decision by the council. The presentation of the awards will be made in April, 2017.
