LET’S GO Hornsea are launching a new community awards to celebrate the valued voluntary work local people tirelessly carry out. Some of these people have contributed to the area or local and national charities over many years if not decades.
An awards ceremony will take place on February 22, 2020 organised by the Let’s Go Hornsea regeneration group and sponsored by Longbeach Leisure Park. The awards will celebrate the achievements of these remarkable people who will be nominated by the public and include the contribution of our young people too.
Public nominations will be shortlisted by members of Let’s Go Hornsea before the judging panel consisting of the sponsors and Let’s Go Hornsea members will choose the winners.
The People’s Choice Award will not be chosen by a panel of judges but by the general public and it will be the person or group that receives the most votes with the winner announced at the awards evening by event sponsor Longbeach Leisure Park.
The awards evening will be held at Hornsea Golf Club with tickets on sale at The Townhouse and at the Wellbeing Studio in Hornsea Market Place.
