Nominate Your Community Hero

11 January 2017

In celebration of the dedication and determination of volunteers throughout Northern Ireland who are working towards cleaner, greener communities, Keep Northern Ireland Beautiful are hosting the first ever Live Here Love Here Community Awards on Thursday 16th February 2017!

These awards have been designed to celebrate the work of groups and individuals who instil pride in our communities through practical environmental action such as clean ups, green ups and spruce ups.

Keep Northern Ireland Beautiful run a number of campaigns and programmes that embody the values of Live Here Love Here which would not be possible without the help of our dedicated volunteers. The BIG Spring Clean, Northern Ireland’s largest anti-litter campaign, engaged 107,201 volunteers in 2016 and as a result we were able to remove a massive 298 tonnes of litter across Northern Ireland.

Keep Northern Ireland Beautiful are calling members of the community to nominate any groups or individuals who they feel should be recognised for their work and dedication to the values of Live Here Love Here. This work could be anything from improving the quality of their local environment, reducing litter or dog fouling, creating a shared community space and encouraging people to have pride in their local community.

With 12 categories to apply for, there is something for everyone. Whether your nominee is a dedicated litter hero, a tourism booster or a neighbourhood champion, now is your chance to say thank you. 
Entry is free and easy, simply download an application pack from www.liveherelovehere.org, fill out the nomination form and send it to Karina at [email protected] before 12 noon on 23rd January 2017.
