Villagers are being asked to nominate people in their community who have gone above and beyond.

Cheddar Parish Council is hosting its Community Service Awards which aim to recognise groups and individuals who have made significant contributions to life in Cheddar.

Last year’s ceremony saw Grahame Burnell complimented for his many years working with the village’s busy scout group.

Anne Higgs was also recognised for her working inspiring young people to play brass instruments.

A special business award was also made and presented to Adrian and Estelle Cobb for opening a much-needed butchers shop in the village.

To make your nomination, email clerk@cheddarparishcouncil.org or send it to Clerk, Parish Hall, Church Street, Cheddar, BS27 3RA.

Entrants should include a brief reason with their nomination.

The deadline is March 23 ahead of the ceremony on April 18.
