THERE is less than a week left to ensure that community heroes get the recognition they deserve.

That's the message from Babergh District Council today as they urged organisations to get their nominations in for the Community Achievement Awards by the deadline of November 30.

THERE is less than a week left to ensure that community heroes get the recognition they deserve.

That's the message from Babergh District Council today as they urged organisations to get their nominations in for the Community Achievement Awards by the deadline of November 30.

The council have also confirmed that popular BBC Radio Suffolk presenter Mark Murphy will be the guest of honour at ceremony itself next year.

Awards organiser Jill Barton said that the response had been good so far. "We want to remind nominating bodies such as councils and schools that they've only got about a week left to ensure that they don't miss the deadline," she said.

She urged organisations "to put on their thinking caps and make sure that nobody worthy of being nominated is left out by mistake.

"We are especially keen to see more young people being nominated," she added.

The ceremony will be held on February 20 at the Stoke-By-Nayland Golf Club. There are two categories of nominations – for young people under the age of 18 and for adults above that age.

Nomination forms were sent to parish councils, headteachers, community education officers and Suffolk Association of Voluntary Organisations (SAVO) in early October.

Last year's ceremony saw more than 20 Babergh residents recognised for making a substantial and positive difference to their communities.
