MERTON CIVIC AWARDS 2015 In association with
CLOSING DATE: May 21 2015

Foreword by the Mayor of Merton
Wimbledon Guardian: Mayor of Merton 2014/2015, Agatha   Akyigyina As I approach the last few months of my mayoralty, I look back fondly on the many people I’ve had the pleasure to meet who make this borough a wonderful place to live, work and learn. I have met people from all walks in life, who all have one thing in common: their sense of community. Many of these people do exceptional things, day in, day out, without any expectation of thanks or recognition.

These awards are a chance to say ‘thank you’ to those people. They may be a neighbour, friend or work colleague who make a significant difference to your life, or the lives of others. Whoever they are, you can make a difference to their life, by giving them the opportunity to be recognised for the work they do. Thank you for your support. We look forward to receiving your nomination.

This is a great opportunity to say “thank you” to them and encourage even more people to get involved.

Councillor Agatha Akyigyina
Mayor of Merton

Foreword by the Wimbledon Guardian
Wimbledon Guardian: Sean Duggan at the 2014 Merton Civic Awards Having been involved in reporting on life in Merton for over a decade I know what a huge contribution individuals make to this borough.

This community, and the lives of many thousands of people, would be much the poorer without the efforts of an army of unsung heroes who give their time, talent and enthusiasm to help others.

Their role is even more important in these times of austerity when the council and other organisations simply do not have the money to do all that they would like.

They do a huge variety of things week in, week out, without any expectation of reward or recognition.

Which makes it an even bigger pleasure to thank a few more of these wonderful people through the Merton Civic Awards which we first launched in 2013 in partnership with the council.

So if you know someone who is making a contribution to your community please do nominate them for an award now.
