Sutton Community Awards 2019
Nominations are now open for Sutton’s Community Awards 2019. The awards will celebrate the people who make Sutton a better place to live, work and bring up a family.
The awards are open to everyone who lives, works, studies or volunteers in the borough. Awards will be given out in seven categories that cover outstanding individuals, volunteers, neighbours and community groups.
We are pleased to be working in partnership with Sutton Council, Sutton Housing Partnership and Volunteer Centre Sutton to deliver the community awards.
Winners will be announced at an awards ceremony to be held on Wednesday 9 October 2019.
Awards will be given in the following categories:
