09 Feb Nominate the unsung heroes of St Neots
On 3 March 2023 St Neots Initiative are hosting our Launch Event at Wyboston Lakes. At the event, St Neots Initiative will be presenting three awards, the Sue Jarrett Award for Services to the Community, The John McDonnell Sporting Award and the John Davies award.
Sue Jarrett Award
The first award is the Sue Jarrett Award for Services to the Community. In 2022 Elaine Donaldson was the first recipient. This award is open to individuals or groups who can demonstrate commitment, personal responsibility, their ability to give back to the community and recognised achievements. For those that knew Sue Jarrett, she was able to demonstrate all these aspects in abundance and her enthusiasm rubbed off on others. Please nominate your unsung heroes in the form below.
John Davies Award
The next award is brand new; the John Davies Award. John has been a member of the St Neots Initiative for over 30 years, having served as Chairman for a considerable time. This was undertaken whilst he was in full time employment and not being a resident of St Neots. John has a strong affinity with St Neots and what is community has to offer, despite the last few years health has not been as good as he would like, but still supporting the group in the background. The St Neots Initiative are looking for nominations of people who may fit this criteria, who contribute to society outside of their normal working life. Again we are looking for commitment, personal responsibility, demonstrate ability to give back to the community and able to demonstrate recognised achievements.
John McDonnell Award
The John McDonnell Sporting Award is a new award celebrating an individual who has made a significant impact in local sports. Named after the late John McDonnell, a well-known and beloved figure in local sports who dedicated his time and resources to supporting various sports clubs, the award recognises individuals who embody his spirit and contributions. The award will be open to nominations from all local sports clubs and will be judged by an impartial panel from the St Neots Sports Association. The award aligns with SNI’s core values of people, place, prosperity, and perspective, recognising the crucial role that individuals play in the success and development of local sports and the impact it has on the community. The John McDonnell Award is a testament to John’s legacy and a celebration of the unsung heroes in local sports.
