Civic Honour Awards

So many people in the Hastings District have devoted their time and energy to making a difference in our communities. Victim support volunteers, sport coaches, art enthusiasts; the list goes on.

Each year the Council recognises the voluntary service of individuals or groups/organisations through the Civic Honour Awards.

Nominations for 2014 closed Friday 14 February. 

About the awards

The awards recognise an individual, group or organisation which has contributed significantly to the Hastings District.

Nominations are welcomed in one of the following categories; arts and culture, health and welfare, sport and recreation, education and youth, new volunteer and youth volunteer.

The nominations are judged by Hastings District Council’s Civic Pride Committee before the awards are presented at a ceremony in early May.

Hastings residents have the opportunity to nominate individuals, groups or organisations who have made a special difference volunteering their services to the arts, culture, education, health, recreation, sport, welfare or youth of the Hastings District. These people/groups could be awarded a Civic Honour Award.

Selection process

Nominations will be considered by the Hastings District Council's Civic Honours Award Committee before the awards are presented by Mayor of Hastings, Lawrence Yule, at an official function in April.
