A Civic Honour is the highest award that Central Hawke’s Bay District Council bestows. It honours individual residents who have made a lasting impact in the community and it is time to think about nominations for the 2018 award.

“The success of Central Hawke’s Bay hinges on the contribution of its people and their work building our strong community. There are many thousands of voluntary hours in our community that do not go unnoticed, but are not often recognised formally,” says Mayor Alex Walker.
“I encourage you to reflect on all the good work that is happening in our district. Who has made this possible? Is their dedication and contribution worthy of recognition?”
Council in conjunction with the 1990 Commission and the Central Hawke’s Bay Women’s Institute, established the Civic Award to recognise the outstanding voluntary community service carried out within the Central Hawke’s Bay district by an Individual. It is awarded annually.
Last year’s recipient was Lloyd Lawrence; awarded the Civic Award by Mayor Alex Walker at a special ceremony held in the Council Chambers acknowledging his many years of dedicated voluntary community service to our district.
After moving to Central Hawke’s Bay from Wellington in 1958 Lloyd took an interest in many sporting and community organisations in Central Hawke’s Bay. Lloyd’s most recent achievement is the founding of the CHB Community Security Trust, in conjunction with the Police, for the purpose of establishing a network of CCTV cameras in the townships of Waipukurau and Waipawa. He single-handedly approached businesses to raise $53,000 towards the project. This achievement has made Central Hawke’s Bay a safer place for everyone.
This year nominations close at 4.30pm on Friday 15 June 2018. Nominations are encouraged from any organisation/group or individual in respect of any person, ordinarily resident in Central Hawke’s Bay who has made a significant contribution to the district.
Nomination forms and Conditions of nomination can be obtained on the Council website www.chbdc.govt.nz or by emailing Lizz Jenkins on firstname.lastname@example.org. Forms are also available at the Waipawa and Waipukurau Libraries.
