Hythe & Dibden Parish Council Nomination Form Community Spirit Award and Environmental Champion Award
Community Spirit Award and Environmental Champion Award- INFORMATION

Since February 2020 the pandemic has brought many changes to the Parish and one of the most amazing is the many ways in which the community stepped up to help each other. The Parish Council wishes to continue a tradition that is a memorable and distinctive way for the community to thank and pay special tribute to the people of Hythe and Dibden whose work and efforts have shown kindness and support in this extraordinary year. These people have been key in getting the community through this difficult time and what they do and what they have achieved is an example for us all.
This year alongside the winner of the Community Spirit and the Environment Awards every person who is nominated will be recognised with the unique Community Spirit Award Pin especially designed by local graphic designer Simon Chadwick.

• Community Spirit – this can be volunteers/neighbours/friends/family who did shopping when you couldn’t get out, delivery drivers, just a neighbour who stopped by to say hello or a friend who rang to check you were OK, Businesses that went out of their way to deliver goods and services to you etc. People who sewed PPE, collected care packages for frontline workers. People who collected food and essentials, the list is endless. Essentially anyone who showed kindness and support and made the last year more bearable for you.

• Environmental Champion – to particularly recognise people who voluntarily keeps our Parish clean and tidy and/or undertake environmental improvement work.
