Newcastle-under-Lyme heroes awards

As part of the 850th anniversary celebrations we are launching the inaugural 'Newcastle heroes' awards. The 850 celebrations recognise all things good about the borough from our history through to our future.
Our communities are the bedrock of this borough and they in turn rely on the people within them who give their time, energy and enthusiasm to make a difference to the lives of those around them. As part of the 850 celebrations, we want to recognise those people and thank them.

The Newcastle heroes will be honoured for the first time at the Mayor's Ball.

You can nominate someone for an award in one of the following 3 categories.

Community champion

Our community champion award is an opportunity to say thank you to someone who has done something special for their local community and who goes above and beyond to support the borough. Our community champion will be someone who has tirelessly supported a local cause and engages with others to help their local area flourish.

Young hero

Our young hero award is open to nominations for young residents under the age of 21. This person will have made a significant contribution to their community and represent our younger residents. Their contribution may be to volunteering, environmental projects or any other aspect of our awards – but the award winner will be a rising star and one to watch.

Lifetime achievement

The lifetime achievement award recognises and celebrates a resident who has persistently and tirelessly championed a cause or community project which has had long term and sustainable impact on the borough. We value those who use their experience, and passion for progress and improvement to benefit our borough in the long term.
