Newark & Sherwood Community Awards Categories 2023

Nominations have now closed! 

That’s it, the nomination window is now closed. 

This year there are 12 awards up for grabs encompassing various sectors, talents, skills and personalities.

In the last four years the world has been forced to change and adapt to ways we never thought possible. It has been challenging not just financially but emotionally too. One thing that has not disappeared is the kind, amazing public spirit of people, striving to deliver the best service, provide laughter, excel in a subject or workplace or just be an all round great egg, and that is what we wish to celebrate, the ones that stand out from the crowd. 

Set in the stunning historic and picturesque surroundings of Kelham Hall the Newark and Sherwood Community Awards return on Friday 8th September 2023.

A 3 course meal, award ceremony, party and night to remember are on the cards. Below are 12 categories, we would love for you to have a peek and see who you know, maybe a friend, family member, stranger, or employee at your favourite store who fits the bill and who you think deserves to be in for a night to remember! Once you have chosen your amazing person and relevant award simply fill in the form and we will do the rest!
