Cllr Chris Warren, Chair of Saltford Parish Council, said in support of the awards: ‘The community’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic has been amazing. We are delighted to have added four categories to the 2021 awards in recognition of the remarkable contributions made over the past year. Outside of COVID-19 responses, there are many active individuals and groups in Saltford who also deserve recognition in 2021 for their community spirit. Saltford Parish Council is delighted to be able to celebrate the many positive actions of local people, groups and businesses through its annual Community Awards’.
Along with public recognition for their contribution to the Saltford community at the awards ceremony, winners also will receive a certificate and £75 towards their chosen Saltford group, project, cause or charity.
SPC hopes to combine the postponed 2020 awards with 2021’s Community Awards ceremony on Friday 21st May 2021 at Saltford Hall (pending regulations). More information will be shared nearer the time.
