Following the success of the Newhaven Young People of the Year Awards held in 2010 and 2011, it has been decided to extend the scheme this year to include awards for people of all ages. 

Newhaven Town Council is  now looking for sponsorship for these awards, which will be presented in a ceremony to be held on 2nd May 2012.

The renamed Newhaven Community Awards will include awards in the following categories:

For young people:

• Young Carer

• Young Sportsperson

• Young Person of Courage

And for people of all ages:

• Volunteer

• Achiever

• Unsung Hero

In addition, there will be an overall main award: "The Newhaven Community Award" which will be presented  to someone nominated for any one of the six categories.

Each winner will receive a cash prize and a commemorative trophy which will be engraved with their name, the award and the name of the sponsor.

Sponsors will also be mentioned in all publicity material relating to the awards. For example, on the Town Council website and in press releases. Sponsorship would consist of the cash prize of £100 - or £200 for the big Newhaven Community Award. The Town Council will provide the trophies.
