Town mayor Cllr Jon Newell said: “We know that there are many individuals, businesses and groups within the community that go out of their way to help others and make Wilmslow a better place.

“From litter picking to planting trees and vegetables, running community cafes to volunteering at youth clubs, there are people within Wilmslow who give hours and hours of their own time and expect nothing in return.

“We are delighted to introduce a new community awards programme to highlight, celebrate and show our appreciation of these people, who make a big contribution to the community spirit of Wilmslow.”

Paper application forms are also available at Wilmslow Library.

Closing date for nominations is Easter Sunday, March 31.
