Nominations are open to suggest villagers who have gone the extra mile for an annual citizen of the year award.

The Coates Citizen of the Year is an annual event that was launched in 2011.

Mark Fairbank, chairman of Friends of Holy Trinity, said: “It celebrates a person, who has been voted for by fellow villagers, who has contributed significantly to the village over recent years.

“We are now looking for help in choosing the candidates for the 2017 awards.

“We all know someone who is helpful, but can you think of someone who goes out of their way to help many villagers or the local community. “Candidates can be of any age, and can be put forward for any reason that you feel is worthy.

To nominate send their name and a brief reason why and include your name and contact details to vote@wpcteam.org.uk or Mark Fairbank, 14 Church Gardens, Coates. PE7 2BF. Closing date is Monday July 10.
