DERBYSHIRE County Council has started the hunt for Excellence in the Community award winners.
The authority wants to hear about exceptional people, groups or organisations that have worked tirelessly to raise money for good causes, as volunteers, to protect the environment and make Derbyshire a safer place, to encourage communities or to promote the county. You can nominate someone at www.derbyshire.gov.uk/excellenceawards or call 08456 058058. Nomination forms are also available in libraries. The awards are open to anyone over 18 years of age and the closing date for nominations is Friday, August 19.
