TIME is running out to nominate someone you know for the good work they do within the community.

The annual Comet Community Awards aim to recognise people for their selfless acts to help others – from volunteers and carers to parents and teachers.

Do you have a good neighbour? Do you know a young achiever? Is there someone you feel should be acknowledged for their environmental efforts?

Those shortlisted for each of the 12 categories will be invited to a special ceremony at Hitchin Town Hall on May 31.

Police Community Support Officer Chris Nash, who covers the Baldock area, has been nominated in the Service to the Community category of the awards by colleague Nikki Hall.

She said: “Chris has been described by a Baldock resident as being ‘a good community policeman who is doing a good job. He is true to his word and when he says he will do something, he does.’
