The Outstanding Achievement Awards, which celebrated running for a decade last year, are back and this time with four new categories and a new main sponsor.

The categories are:
Good friend/good neighbour
Volunteer of the year
Young achiever of the year
Best community group/community achievement
Council Leader Ernie White said:
“Following a fantastic ten years I am delighted to announce the Outstanding Achievement Awards are back and this time with Casepak as the new main sponsor, as well as four new categories to submit nominations for.
“There are so many people doing wonderful things in our district and it is important we recognise their achievements. I’m looking forward to seeing which local heroes we can uncover this time round.”
