Nominate a Somerset Star Volunteer
Thank Somerset's unsung heroes by nominating individuals and groups who volunteer in their local communities for a Somerset Star Volunteer Award.
Nominations are open from Monday 27 February until Friday 21 April 2017 and anyone can put forward individuals and volunteer groups who go that extra mile in their communities and have such a positive impact on other people's lives.
Each Somerset district will choose a final Somerset Star Volunteer Award winner, to be presented with their 'Somerset Star' award at events planned to coincide with National Volunteers Week (Thursday 1 to Wednesday 7 June 2017). All five district winners will then be put forward for the opportunity to be crowned 'County winner', who will receive their award at the Somerset County Council's Chairman's Awards in the autumn.
Go to the Somerset You Can Do website to nominate your Somerset Star.
