This is the stage in the year when the Chairman invites nominations for the Society’s ‘individual’ award.

It was created ‘to acknowledge the personal contribution made by an appropriate individual towards work, voluntary or otherwise, that has been of outstanding value to the Alton community’.

Members of the Society are now invited to submit nominations for the 2014 Award, which should be sent as soon as possible, but at latest by 31 August, to Mike Heelis via email (mheelis@sky.com)or by post to 16 High Ridge, Alton, GU34 1QW.

Please support your proposal with a note of up to about 150 words.
