Cllr Liz Walsh, Chiltern District Council Cabinet Member for Healthy Communities, said:

"This is the final community awards we will be holding as Chiltern District Council, before we become a new authority in April. With that in mind, we want to make this the biggest and best community awards ceremony yet. 

"There are so many wonderful people in our community who give their time and energy to make Chiltern the best place it can be. We're looking for the community champions, the volunteers, the eco ambassadors, and the people who voluntarily put themselves at risk to protect others in our emergency services.

"If you know someone who deserves to be recognised, please nominate them via the form on our website."
