Civic Honours Awards nominations now open

Civic Honours 2022

Our 2022 Civic Honours Awards recipients - who will be nominated this year?

Nominations are now open for Hastings District Council’s 2023 Civic Honours Awards.

These annual awards are held to recognise an individual, group or organisation that has contributed significantly to Hastings district in the following categories: arts and culture, health and welfare, sport and recreation along with education and youth.

Hastings mayor Sandra Hazlehurst said that for more than 30 years Council has recognised our community champions through the Civic Honours Awards and wants to acknowledge people who have made a significant difference to our community. 

“These awards are one of the highlights of our year – it’s wonderful to be able to recognise those who have contributed generously to our community.

“Past Civic Honours recipients have helped so many people in so many ways including organising major sporting, community and cultural events; they have lifted the health and wellbeing of people of all ages; they have worked tirelessly to improve our special parks, reserves and gardens for everyone to enjoy; they have kept our community safe; they have helped and cared for our vulnerable people; they have served in our organisations; they have taught and trained our youth; they have enriched the lives of our not so young people; and they have lifted and empowered people’s lives with music.”

Civic development subcommittee chair Malcolm Dixon invites nominations, which are open until 5pm, April 12, 2023.  Forms are available at the Hastings, Havelock North and Flaxmere libraries and from council’s Customer Service Centre in Lyndon Road. Alternatively, they can be submitted online -
