Nominations will be whittled down into a shortlist, with successful nominees invited to a special reception at Dereham Memorial Hall later in the year, on September 10. 

Similar awards were staged in 2012 for the Queen's Diamond Jubilee. 

The town's mayor, Stuart Green, said: "These awards give us the chance to recognise hard work and commitment.
