Nominations are still open for the Lewes Civic Awards which celebrate the people who make Lewes a better place to live.

But hurry because the deadline to suggest who you think should win in the categories of arts, community, environment, heritage and sports is January 31.

The awards are being run by Lewes Town Council and are now in their third year.

A spokesperson for the town council said: “The awards are to celebrate the silent stars working tirelessly among us, and in recognition of outstanding service to the people of Lewes.

“We are calling on people across the town to put forward nominations for the awards and want you to tell us about the people in your community who achieve great things or go above and beyond what is expected of them to make things happen.”

The judging panel will consider all nominations and the awards will be presented on April 16 by the Mayor of Lewes.

Each recipient will receive a certificate plus a cheque for £100 payable to their chosen charity and a special lapel badge.

If you or your organisation would like to nominate an individual, you must be able to demonstrate that before or during 2014 the person put forward has made a material contribution to the advancement, well being and welfare of the people of Lewes, supported charitable work carried out in the town in a voluntary capacity, or demonstrated outstanding citizenship.

Nomination forms can be obtained from Lewes Town Hall or downloaded from the website www.lewes-tc.gov.uk
