NOMINATIONS for the 2014 Pride of Swindon Awards close on Monday.

This is your last chance to nominate someone who deserves to be recognised for the difference they have made to their community by helping others.

Maybe they are a volunteer who has given their time selflessly for years, a child or adult who has displayed remarkable courage, a person who has helped reduce crime in your area or an extra special neighbour.

It could also be an employee who has gone the extra mile for those in the community, or maybe an inspiring teacher or a caring nurse or doctor.

There are two types of award – the first recognises the achievements of individuals in the community.

But, if you don’t want to single out an individual for recognition, instead you can nominate a team of people that carry out an invaluable service that benefits local people.

For more about the Pride of Swindon Awards or to nominate someone, visit, post your entry to The Pride of Swindon Awards, Mayor’s Office, Civic Offices, Euclid Street, Swindon SN1 2JH, or email
