The Vale of Allen Parish Council is running an award scheme that aims to recognise contributions to the community made by children and young people aged 5 to 18 years.

If you know of a young person who has helped the community (e.g. helping an older neighbour, helping in a play-group or fund-raising event) or made a difference to the local environment (e.g. litter-picking, hedge-cutting, path clearance, renovation projects) and you feel they deserve recognition, you can nominate that person for a certificate.

Certificates will usually be presented during village events by local councillors. In some circumstances, awards for exceptional or sustained contributions may be presented by district or county councillors at a pre-arranged venue or event.

Please either complete the form below or download the form below and submit your completed form to your local councillor or email it to The nomination will be presented at the next available council meeting. You should receive confirmation of the award within one month of submitting the nomination.

If the nominee is not related to you, remember to gain permission of parents or carers before submitting any nomination.

As nominator you will be the initial point of liaison and the council will contact you to confirm the award.
