The awards are presented annually by Hutt City Council to honour voluntary groups for their outstanding contribution to the community.
Mayor Ray Wallace is encouraging people to nominate voluntary groups as a way of showing their appreciation and gratitude for their service in the community.
“Our community is made richer through the work of these groups, many of whom are dedicated to improving our environment, making the city safer, and providing opportunities for social and personal development.”
The Community Awards are sponsored by Wellington International Airport Limited, in partnership with The Community Trust of Wellington and the region’s five local councils. Award categories include: heritage and environment, health and wellbeing, arts and culture, sport and leisure, and education and child/youth development.
Safe City Awards nominations can be made for both individuals and groups.
Make a nomination online or pick up a form at any Hutt City library, Hutt City Council at 30 Laings Road, or by calling 04 570 6666.
