Good Neighbour Awards

Do you have a good neighbour?

Our Good Neighbour Awards recognise people in the community who go ‘above and beyond’ to help make life easier for others.

Perhaps someone has helped you to carry your shopping to your front door, or taken out your bins for you. Maybe your neighbour is always willing to lend a helping hand, or you’ve noticed that they always go out of their way to help others.

It doesn’t matter how big or small – if someone has helped you or others in your community and you think they deserve a little recognition, then why not nominate them for a Good Neighbour Award?

How to make a nomination

Nominating someone is easy! Simply tell us the name of the GreenSquare tenant you’re nominating and the reasons why you think they deserve the recognition. 

  • You can complete the form online here.
  • Or click here to download a form and send it to Sue Matthews at GreenSquare, Methuen Park, Chippenham SN14 0GU.

Nominations are open all year. The next winners will be chosen in 2020. There will be one winner and one runner up for Gloucestershire, Oxfordshire, and Wiltshire (£100 winner, £50 runner up, plus certificates for all nominees).

Jane was nominated for her tireless work fundraising and supporting various charities, including supporting the homeless by collecting and distributing blankets, sleeping bags and cooking meals. Read more about why she was nominated here.

 

"I did not expect anything like this. When you phoned and told me I asked if you were sure, I thought somebody was playing a prank on me! But I’m really pleased, it’s nice that somebody nominates you. It makes you feel what you’re doing is worthwhile.

The awards are being offered in memory of Angie Clapp, a former Westlea and GreenSquare Board member and Chair of the Tenants Participation Advisory Service (TPAS), who sadly passed away in February 2014.

We would like to put together a resident panel to judge the awards. If you are interested in being involved with the judging, please contact us.
