JUDGES have made their final decisions to crown this year’s winners in a major awards ceremony.
The Borough’s Big Thank You Awards attracted more than 80 nominations which were scrutinised in detail last week by borough mayor Councillor Hazel Lynskey and mayoress Shiela Kettlewell.
The process, which took place in Scarborough Town Hall, also saw Couns Ros Fox and Jane Mortimer cast their eye over the nominees in the eight differing categories.
The scheme is run through a partnership between Scarborough Borough Council and the Whitby Gazette as well as our sister paper, The Scarborough Evening News to highlight the selfless deeds and kind and generous ways of volunteers in Whitby and the wider borough.
The categories in the awards include Young Achiever, Good Neighbour and Courage over Adversity.
Further categories which attracted a number of other entries were Artistic and Cultural Development, Care and Support in the Community, Charitable Fund-raising, Heritage and Environment and Performing Arts.
Following the theme of previous years, everyone who was nominated, as well as those that put them forward, will be invited to an awards evening at Scarborough Spa Complex on Wednesday 23 March from 6pm. The awards are again supported by Riverside Motors in Seamer.
