Children and teenagers who are making a difference across Crowland are to be recognised at an annual awards ceremony.

The Crowland Young Achievers’ Award welcomes nominations of individuals, groups and organisations who have made the town proud, either in sport, education, caring for others or overcoming adversity.

Crowland district councillor Bryan Alcock said: “The original intention of the awards was to acknowledge the achievements of young people and there are plenty who qualify for that.

“We are hoping that parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles and schools will pick up the vision and enter children who have done exceptional things.”

Awards are presented in two age categories, under 13s and 13 to 18s, at a ceremony usually held at South View Primary School in July.

Last year’s winners were Lexie King (under 13s) and Henry Cross (13-18s) who both received an engraved trophy, certificate and a cheque.

A Crowland Parish Council spokesman said: “We do have some really special young people in our town and it is so good to acknowledge this.

“It is a pleasure to perform the task of hosting the Crowland Young Achievers’ Awards each year as the future of Crowland is in the hands of these young people that the town can be proud of.”

Nomination forms are available from the Crowland Parish Council offices in Hall Street or call the Parish Clerk on 01733 210653.

The closing date for nominations is Wednesday, May 31.
