Nominations open for Lincolnshire community volunteer award


Do you know a selfless volunteer who deserves recognition for their work?

To celebrate the work of those who, willingly and freely, give their time and effort to manage and maintain Lincolnshire community buildings the Directors of Community Lincs are requesting nominations from Community Building Committees for the John Barker Trophy.

For many years community building committees across Lincolnshire were able to call upon the technical expertise of John Barker on building related matters.

Although John has now retired from volunteering for Community Lincs, he gave his support and technical advice on subjects including property maintenance, new buildings, extensions and refurbishment of existing premises.

In recognition of his volunteering service the Directors of Community Lincs established the ‘The John Barker Trophy’ to celebrate the work of local community building volunteers.

Community Lincs community facilities adviser Samantha Smith said there are very many volunteers who deserve recognition for their service to the community in which they live, through their involvement with community buildings.

All nominations for this award will need two sponsors from a community building committee and a written presentation of no more than 300 words as supporting evidence.

The winner of each category will receive their trophy at the organisations AGM on September 23.

Nominations will be accepted between now and 4pm on August 14.

All nominations should be submitted online
