Do you know a member of the community who goes the extra mile to make Merton a better place? Or a member of Merton Council staff who has given outstanding customer service?

The council is calling for nominations in its Community Champions Awards to recognise excellence in the community and the council.

There are two categories – The Contribution to the Community Award and a Staff Excellence Award.

The Staff Excellence Award is for an individual or team who you think have demonstrated outstanding customer service or just gone the extra mile.

The community award is for someone who is not employed by the council. This could be a volunteer who supports the council in their spare time or someone who just collects litter in their local park because they care about the borough.

If you know someone who gives up their time to make Merton a better place, nominate them for an award.

Nominations should be made by Tuesday, September 23.
