DO YOU KNOW of any Haslemere residents who have given great service to the town, often unnoticed, and deserve to be honoured with a special volunteer award?

The Haslemere Volunteer Award Scheme has been revived after a long gap during the pandemic, and is on the lookout for nominations.

The medals are donated by Herald proprietor Sir Ray Tindle and since the inauguration in 2010, more than 120 have been presented to these exceptional people.

Fay Foster, of the Haslemere VolunteerAward Scheme, said: “After a long gap during the lockdown, Haslemere is resuming the scheme whereby residents who have given great service to the town, often unnoticed, are honoured with a special volunteer award.

“The medals are kindly donated by Sir Ray Tindle of the Herald and since the inauguration in 2010, more than 120 have been presented to these exceptional people.

“At the current time everyone will be aware of the many unsung heroes who have offered help during the past difficult years and been a lifeline to vulnerable people in our community.

“The next presentation will coincide with Haslemere Town Council’s annual meeting at Haslemere Museum in April, the date to be confirmed.

“Nominations are being sought for those who fit the category and forms are available from Haslemere Town Council ([email protected]) or from me ([email protected]).

“Once these are received, a panel of independent people will consider each candidate and those successful will be notified in early April.

“We know there are very many who deserve recognition and would like to hear about these people and give them a well-deserved award.”
