We Love North Devon
27 May 2010, 06:00
We're being encouraged to say what we love about our area.
It's for a new initiative called 'We Love North Devon' which is aiming to help us celebrate where we live.
We'll be able to nominate people and places to receive an award at a special ceremony next year.
The initiative's a joint scheme between our district councils, police and other agencies like Devon and Somerset Fire and Rescue.
Superintendent Kevin Harris said: "People in North Devon have a perception of what it's like up here. It's about making sure everybody understand how brilliant it is up here and that we live in a safe, confident community."
We'll be able to nominate in 6 categories:
- Most Loved Neighbour
- Most Loved Project or Activity for Teenagers
- Most Loved Project for the Elderly
- Most Loved Community Worker
- Most Loved Open Space
- Most Loved Childhood Memory of North Devon
Nominations will open in the next few months.
Tell us what you think - Who would you nominate? Will these awards change the way you feel about where you live? Leave a comment below.
