Live Here Love Here Community Awards 2018

25 November 2017

It is time to celebrate the dedicated and determined volunteers throughout Northern Ireland who are working to create cleaner and greener communities. Nominate your local community hero for the Live Here Love Here Community Awards 2018!

These awards celebrate the tremendous efforts of groups and individuals across the province who embody the values of Live Here Love Here, making Northern Ireland a cleaner, greener and safer place to live. If you know a group or an individual who deserves an award for their volunteer work carried out on a positive environmental project then we want to hear from you. This work could be anything from improving the quality of their local environment, an innovative way of reducing litter, or encouraging others to have pride within their local community through practical environmental action.

Taking place on the 20th February 2018 at Belfast Harbour Commissioners Office, the awards will be hosted by Lesser Spotted Journeys presenter, Joe Mahon and will encourage all generations to come together with like-minded people and celebrate their pride in their communities.

With 14 categories to apply for, there is something for everyone. Whether your nominee is a dedicated litter hero or a community champion, now is your chance to say thank you.

Entry is free and easy, simply download a nomination form and some helpful information at www.liveherelovehere.org and send it in to Karina Magee at karina.magee@keepnorthernirelandbeautiful.org before 12 noon on 8th January 2018 so your group doesn't miss out!
