Please note the Parish Council is currently revising its policy on this annual award - more details will be made available as soon as possible.
The Award Scheme was first introduced to the people of the parish of Alveston by the Parish Council in 1994 to honour those in the Parish who have made a significant voluntary contribution to the community within the Parish. The scheme was renamed "The John Dyer Award" in 1995 in recognition of John's contribution to the community.
The aim of the award is to provide a local and therefore easily accessible recognition of distinctive achievements of adult individuals who are resident in, or whose achievements are within the Parish of Alveston which includes the villages of Alveston, Earthcott and Rudgeway.
Acts of service to individuals or groups, which by virtue of its merit and duration, has contributed significantly to the quality of life within the Parish of Alveston.
Acts of service shall not include activity derived from paid employment nor in the service of political parties or other bodies and such service shall be voluntary and unpaid.
Whilst such acts of service should normally be given within the Parish, consideration can be given to nominations where the service is given outside the Parish providing residents of the Parish obtain benefit from such service.
Nominations for the award have now closed and due to the fact that no nominations were received this year, a presentation will not be made.
