Nantwich Salt of the Earth Awards

Salt of the Earth Awards

Over the past five years, the Mayors of Nantwich have been celebrating the efforts of the community through an annual awards presentation.

This year, Nantwich Mayor, Councillor Arthur Moran, is following suit and will be presenting awards to recognise and celebrate the achievements of individuals, groups and businesses, that selflessly make a real difference to the Nantwich community.

The Mayor is asking for you to come forward and nominate your local heroes, he commented, “It never ceases to amaze me how lucky we are in this town to have such a large number of hidden gems volunteering their time for the rest of the community. Some of these groups and individuals go undetected for years and this is the town’s opportunity to celebrate and acknowledge some of them.”

“So, if you know someone or a group, who gives up their time and energy to help others or make Nantwich a better place, please help us recognise their work by nominating them for an award.”

The fittingly named ‘Salt of the Earth’ Awards, this year kindly sponsored by Oat Market based Johnsons Printers, will be presented at a reception on Monday 4th May at Nantwich Civic Hall.

Johnsons Director, Rachel McMillan said “We are delighted to be supporting this year’s awards. Our business has been at the heart of Nantwich since 1827 and it is a terrific opportunity for us to give something back to the community.
