Ogmore MP encourages constituents to nominate community heroes for the ‘Your UK Parliament Awards’
Local MP Chris Elmore is encouraging people across Ogmore to get involved with the annual Your UK Parliament Awards. The awards celebrate the brilliant work carried out all over the UK by individuals and organisations who are making a difference to their communities, or who promote democratic action. Whether it’s hosting a debate for a campaign, promoting community engagement, taking action on an issue you care about or sharing information with the local community, nothing is too big or too small.
Nominations for the awards are now open, with people able to nominate a local person, organisation – or themselves! There are 7 different award categories to choose from, including community work, digital campaigns and school of the year. The closing date for applications is January 31st, and more information about the different categories and how to apply can be found on the Your UK Parliament website.
Chris Elmore MP said:
“Ogmore is built upon an amazing community spirit. We are lucky to have so many people and organisations going above and beyond, day in, day out. We want to celebrate the positive action taking place in our community.
“That is why I am asking people to nominate those Ogmore residents and organisations who you think deserve the Your UK Parliament Award 2021. We have such a brilliant story to tell in Ogmore, and these awards are our chance to do just that.
“I’m immensely proud to work with the local people and community organisations who make life better for people here in Ogmore. All of them are winners in my eyes, and I know each and every one would be worthy recipients of one of these prestigious awards.”
