Entries close on 30 September for this year’s Safe City Awards so now’s the time to nominate an individual or group for helping to make the City of Gosnells a safer place.

The City’s Mayor Glenn Dewhurst said these annual awards were a great way to acknowledge the efforts of people in our community, who made a difference through crime prevention, community safety or environmental programs.

“There are many organisations, youth groups, individuals and schools doing some terrific work to improve our community in so many ways and they should be rewarded,” he said.

“Some of the previous winners have been involved in programs to increase opportunities for young people, improve aspects of our society, encourage people to work together or reduce the fear of crime.

“Don’t hesitate to nominate if you know someone or a group that deserves recognition for their efforts in making our City safer.”

There are three categories – the Community Kids Awards, Community Initiative Award and Constable Peter Ball Memorial Youth Award.

Projects or programs must have occurred in the past 12 months and there is up to $1,000 in prize money available.

Last year, the Community Kids Award was jointly awarded to Campbell and Brookman Primary Schools, Gosnells District Neighbourhood Watch received the Community Initiative Award and the Constable Peter Ball Memorial Youth Award was presented to the Constable Care Child Safety Foundation.

The Safe City Awards are proudly sponsored by Examiner Newspapers. For more information or a nomination form, please call 9397 3000 or visit the City’s website at www.gosnells.wa.gov.au/safecity.
