The first ever Newhaven Community Awards are to be presented tonight by the Young Mayor of Newhaven, Charlotte Crookston, and the Mayor, Councillor Steve Saunders at the Hillcrest Community Centre.  

There are six awards - Young Carer, Young Person of Courage, Young Sportsperson, Achiever, Volunteer and Unsung Hero. The latter three awards are for people of all ages. In addition there is an overall award; The Newhaven Community Award, for which everyone nominated for any of the awards has been considered.

The awards have been sponsored by Pinnacle Publishing Limited, the Newhaven Enterprise Centre, Newhaven McDonalds and Wave Leisure.

The Awards Ceremony starts at 7.00pm and will be followed by the annual Town Meeting, which is an opportunity for local people to find out what Newhaven Town Council has been doing over the last year and to ask their councillors questions.

The Town Council's Annual Report is now available to download from its website at and hard copies will be available at tonight's meeting.

Before and after the Awards Ceremony and the Town Meeting there will be an opportunity to talk to local organisations, including Haven News, who will have information tables at the event.
