Housing tenants are encouraged to nominate anyone who they feel deserves credit for their consideration either to them or to others.
Whether they have done them a good turn, helped them with the shopping, or improved the quality of life for the whole community – however big or small the contribution, or action, Housing want to hear about it.
Charlie Barratt, tenant participation officer at Housing, said: ‘Lots of our tenants do a great deal for their community and get no recognition or credit because nobody knows what they are doing.
This is an effort to recognise their contribution and also try to bring people together.
‘It could be anyone – it could even be a child who sits with an elderly lady to keep her company.
We want as many nominees as possible,’ she added.
Representatives from Housing will visit each nominee and judge the winners.
It has not been decided yet how many people will win, or how many categories there will be, mainly because there are so many varying ways that someone could be a good neighbour.
