People in Dereham who have gone above and beyond for their community will be honoured as part of this year's Platinum Jubilee celebrations.
Dereham Town Council is inviting the public to nominate unsung heroes they feel are deserving of a citizens award.
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.
"The Queen herself sets a great example of dedication to the country. There are a great deal of people doing similarly amazing work in Dereham and positively affecting people’s lives."
To request a nomination form, call Dereham Town Council on 01362 693821 or email email@example.com.
